Performance-Focused Features

Develop optimized and vectorized code, deliver industry-leading Fortran code performance, and leverage features in the latest Intel® processors.

An Advantage for Applications

The Intel® Fortran Compiler delivers benefits and capabilities by compiling applications that run on the Intel® architectures for Windows*, Linux*, or macOS*.

Use the compiler in the command line or in a supported IDE:

  • Microsoft Visual Studio* (Windows* only)
  • Eclipse C/C++ Development Tooling (CDT)* (Linux* only)
  • Xcode* (macOS* only)

For complete information on supported architectures, operating systems, and IDEs for this release, see the release notes.

Standards Compliant Compiler

Provide support for:

  • Full-language Fortran 66/77/90/95, full Fortran 2003/2008, plus substantial Fortran 2018 features
  • OpenMP* 4.5 and initial OpenMP 5.0

For more information, see the release notes.

Built-In Performance 

Get industry-leading performance on Intel® and compatible processors.

  • Take advantage of multicore, Single Instruction Multiple Data (SIMD) vectorization, and multiprocessor systems with OpenMP, automatic parallelism, and coarrays
  • Optimize code with an automatic processor dispatch feature
  • Develop with the Intel® Math Kernel Library

Intel® Visual Fortran Compiler (for Windows*)

This complete Fortran development environment works with Visual Studio 2013 (and later).

Key Features & Capabilities

  • Develop, build, debug, and run from a Visual Studio IDE, or build and run from the command line
  • Create traditional console applications or advanced graphical interfaces with QuickWin*, OpenGL*, and Windows API
  • Build mixed-language applications with C++, Visual Basic*, C#, and more (requires Visual Studio)
  • Access thousands of routine, type, and constant declarations that includes Windows API, OpenGL, POSIX*, dialogs, and multibyte character support
  • Leverage the included Component Object Model (COM) and .NET interoperability
  • Access 64-bit compilers
