I am planning to pay for Intel Parallel Studio XE 2013 but I have some questions in my mind:
- What is meaning of XE in Parallel Studio XE 2013? Is it an abbreviation for Xeon? (This question is linked to second question)
- Is Parallel Studio XE 2013 contains specific tools only targeted to Xeon processors? Is it able to generate optimized machine codes for Intel core platforms? We are going to work on a image processing project which will possibly run on core i3 or core i5 processors. For this project, we cannot decide between two Intel products Parallel Studio XE 2013 and System Studio for Linux 2013.
- In the case we have ordered Parallel Studio XE 2013, do we able to integrate it to NetBeans IDE or Eclipse IDE?
- Where can we find a detailed comparison of two products - Parallel Studio XE 2013 and System Studio for Linux 2013?
- We are planning to use OpenCV's ocl module for this project. Can we use tools from Parallel Studio or System Studio to do some performance analyzes on Intel's GPUs (HD series GPUs)?
- I know that AVX technolgy is an extension to SSE technogy. From which I understood that AVX is a more sophisticated technology than SSE and this means AVX optimized codes are more efficient (in means of execution time) than SSE optimized ones. Is that true?
- In the case the following is true: AVX is an extension to SSE, why some processors have multiple instruction set extensions on theri ARK page? eg. http://ark.intel.com/products/65525/Intel-Core-i7-3770T-Processor-8M-Cache-up-to-3_70-GHz
Thanks in advance.
