Performance Awaits Your Application

As processors evolve, it is becoming more and more critical to both vectorize (use AVX or SIMD instructions) and thread software to realize the full performance potential of the processor. In some cases, code that is vectorized and threaded can be more than 175X faster than unthreaded / unvectorized code and about 7X faster than code that is only threaded or vectorized. And that gap is growing with every new processor generation.

Threaded + Vectorized can be much faster than either one alone. The gap is growing with each new hardware generation. View Details.

Optimized Tools to Build Fast Code

Boost your applications performance with Intel® C++ Compiler and Intel® Fortran Compiler for Windows*, Linux* and OS X*. The built-in OpenMP* and Intel® Cilk Plus parallel models combined with performance libraries simplify the implementation of fast, parallel code.

Library & Parallel Model Details

Eliminate Bottlenecks in Code

Optimize serial and parallel performance with an advanced performance and thread profiler (Intel® VTune™ Amplifier). Tune C, C++, Fortran, Assembly and Java* applications.

Deliver More Reliable Applications

Find bugs before they happen with Intel® Inspector, an easy to use memory and threading debugger for C, C++ and Fortran applications.

Assistant to Add Threading and Vectorization

Find the greatest parallel performance potential and identify critical synchronization issues quickly with Intel® Advisor, a vectorization optimization and thread prototyping tool for C, C++ and Fortran applications.

Intel Advisor gives you a performance estimate before you invest significant effort in implementation. Implement only the options that have a high return on investment.

High Performance, Low Latency MPI Communications

Achieve high performance, low latency MPI communications using the latest MPI 3.0 standard with Intel® MPI Library.

Speed MPI Communications with Profiling and Analysis

Improve the performance and reliability of MPI communications with Intel® Trace Analyzer and Collector, an MPI profiler to understand MPI application correctness and behavior by visualizing applications behavior.
