"Staying productive while I search for application performance is important to me. The Intel compilers and MPI support in Intel® Parallel Studio XE Cluster Edition deliver this for me. The new optimization reports in the compiler are excellent in giving me the guidance I need to get better performance. Very productive in improving my code-quality too. Get an eval and try it yourself!"

I develop Fortran-based Linux cluster-based applications and think Intel® Parallel Studio XE Cluster Edition is a great productivity suite – full of very useful tools for developers of complex code who want outstanding application performance. The optimization reports from the Fortran compiler are extremely useful and take advantage of the explicit vectorization compiler features as much as possible. Intel® MKL is a great collection of ready-to-use math libraries that speed development and application performance. Productive stuff for developers from Intel. Keep it coming!

Advanced developers interested in improving the threading in their code, taking better advantage of vectorization and optimizing cache should try Intel Parallel Studio XE Professional Edition. I really liked the improved vectorization reports available from the Intel compiler and recommend Intel® VTune help with effective multi-threading.

The C++11 standards support in the Intel® C++ Compiler is excellent. My code compiled cleanly and delivered excellent support. I recommend that performance-oriented developers, also interested in productivity, get a copy of the Intel® Parallel Studio XE Professional Edition and try this compiler.

Intel Parallel Studio's excellent MPI 3.0, expanded OpenMP 4.0, the new optimization reporting interface and MKL sparse solvers are real highlights of the latest release. We see improved performance on both Intel Xeon processors and Intel Xeon Phi co-processors.

ESI is a pioneer and world-leading provider of Virtual Prototyping solutions that properly take into account the physics of materials. Although easy to use, the software behind our solutions is complex and our developers skilled in high-performance computing. We have recently worked with Intel teams throughout the development of a new version of our Boundary Element Method (BEM) solver; part of the latest version of VA One, our complete solution for vibro-acoustic simulation. I can safely say that Intel compilers, performance libraries, and analysis tools, such as Intel® VTune Amplifier XE have matched our expectations on performance and helped increase our team’s productivity.

Intel has done a great job implementing OpenMP* 4.0 in the Intel Fortran compiler of Intel® Parallel Studio XE. The standards support is also excellent. I have used Intel OpenMP and the Intel Fortran compiler in our scientific computing cluster at the University of Alcalá to add parallelism in the computation of an atmospheric radiative transfer calculation. We have reduced the time needed to analyze a scenario from 2 months to 12 days implementing Intel OpenMP with Intel Fortran compiler. My sincere advice is to try to Intel® Parallel Studio XE.

I work on a Fortran application with a history that goes back about 40 years. No other computer language is better for application performance and no Fortran works better than Intel Fortran at delivering performance while keeping my productivity high as I address complex parallelism opportunities in my code. If you have Fortran legacy code and performance is a priority, try Intel® Parallel Studio XE Professional Edition.
