Free non-commercial download software Vs Student non-commercial software.

Free non-commercial download software Vs Student non-commercial software.

Hello,

Could somebody tell me what is the difference between the Free non-commercial download software that is available for fortran compiler v 8.1 and MKL v 7.2 and the Student non-commercial fortran compiler v 8.1 and MKL v 7.0 available to buy at http://www.cs-software.com/? Whats the difference between their licenses and their preformances?

Thanks,

JG

For more complete information about compiler optimizations, see our Optimization Notice.

Did you look up the descriptions on the Intel sites?

If the performance of the free non-commercial download is better, it would be due to the 30-day access to download of the latest compiler update.

There are no actual product differences - the difference is only in the licensing. (Intel reserves the right to establish a difference in future versions.)

On the Linux side, there really isn't a signficant difference between Student and Non-Commercial. Student pricing makes more sense for the Windows products which don't offer non-commercial licensing.

Where can one obtain the "free non-commercial" versions of this software? I'm specifically looking for the MKL, for a class this semester of 20 students. I've found links here to the academic versions, but they are not free.

Some relevant web pages aren't accessible today. There is a posted e-mail in case you wish to ask specific questions on whether the non-commercial license is applicable, and whether the non-commercial compiler and MKL are bundled together: noncomsoftware@intel.com

This FAQ http://software.intel.com/en-us/articles/non-commercial-software-faq/ implies that you may require the academic license.
