What's New in 2020

We've updated the components within the suite. Here are a few highlights:

  • Latest processor support:
    • 10th generation Intel® Core™ processor (formerly Ice Lake, Comet Lake, Amber Lake)
    • Intel® Xeon® processor (formerly Cascade Lake)
  • Improved debug: Intel® System Debugger adds a newly designed Eclipse* integrated source-level debugger to increase developer efficiency. Intuitively identify targets and connection types with a new target indicator. This cross-platform utility indicates the status of an Intel® Direct Connect Interface debug connection to a target platform.
  • Improved remote development for the Intel® Distribution of OpenVINO™ toolkit in Intel System Studio with a new Docker* platform: Build OpenVINO toolkit projects as a user-selectable option. Support for the latest Intel® IoT Developer Kits accelerate the path from prototype to production.
  • Rapid insights into performance:
    • An overlay tour of important Intel® VTune™ Profiler UI elements provides an improved experience for first-time users.
    • Extended coarse-grain, platform-level collection and analysis in Intel VTune Profiler
    • Intel® Processor Trace support (a preview) for very short anomaly detection such as boot time analysis, long network packet processing detection, and more
    • New workflow enhancements and simplified setup are aided with performance analysis cookbooks that provide common analysis techniques.
  • Enhanced roofline analysis and developer guidance: Intel® Advisor adds cache simulation insights for vectorization by allowing roofline analysis for L1, L2, L3, and DRAM. Use improved developer guidance for performance improvement suggestions from the roofline analysis.
  • Improved ease of use: The tool suite offers new and improved code wizards and samples to speed up IoT project development.
  • Enhanced standards support: Intel® C++ Compiler extended its coverage of C++17 and C++20.
  • Harness more performance: Use the latest updates of the performance libraries, and analysis and debugger tools with new and enhanced features to take advantage of the power of the latest Intel® platforms.
