Build Performance-Optimized Code

Implement efficient, elegant code for system and IoT device applications from the start.

Every edition of Intel® System Studio includes these foundational tools:

Complete specification for the test configuration.1

Intel® C++ Compiler

Plugging right into popular development environments like Eclipse* and Microsoft Visual Studio*, Intel® C++ Compilers are source- and binary-compatible with other compilers, such as Visual C++* for Windows* and GNU Compiler Collection (GCC) for Linux*, macOS*, and Android*.

Xeon performance scalability

Intel Threading Building Blocks

This is a widely used C++ library for shared-memory parallel programming and heterogeneous computing (intra-node distributed memory programming). It's ideal for optimizing IoT solutions to take advantage of multicore architectures.


Intel® Integrated Performance Primitives

This library is a developer's one-stop shop for image, signal, and data processing applications. Ready-to-use and royalty-free, it provides high-quality, production-ready, low-level building blocks to help you tune applications and get the best performance on a given platform.


Configuration information. 2

Intel® Math Kernel Library

Accelerate math processing and neural network routines that increase application performance and reduce development time. This ready-to-use, royalty-free library includes highly vectorized and threaded linear algebra and fast Fourier transforms (FFT), as well as deep neural network, vector math, and statistics functions.


Mlib Performance

Intel® Data Analytics Acceleration Library

Purpose-built for machine learning and analytics on your edge devices, this library addresses all stages of the data analytics pipeline: preprocessing, transforming, analyzing, modeling, validating, and decision-making.

IoT Connection Tools

Remove the complexities of connecting sensor-to-device and device-to-cloud with two open-source connection tools. Includes cloud connectors and Eclipse* plugin modules. Each one includes:

  • MRAA: This low-level library simplifies the logic for connecting to different sensor pins, and allows developers to program in C++, Python*, JavaScript*, or Java*.
  • UPM: This high-level library makes it easy to connect and use sensors and actuators in IoT solutions. With over 400 supported sensors and modules, developers can quickly build and deploy custom IoT solutions.

Benchmark results were obtained prior to implementation of recent software patches and firmware updates that are intended to address exploits referred to as "Spectre" and "Meltdown." Implementation of these updates may make these results inapplicable to your device or system.

Software and workloads used in performance tests may have been optimized for performance only on Intel® microprocessors. Performance tests, such as SYSmark and MobileMark, are measured using specific computer systems, components, software, operations, and functions. Any change to any of those factors may cause the results to vary. You should consult other information and performance tests to assist you in fully evaluating your contemplated purchases, including the performance of that product when combined with other products. For more information go to Performance Benchmark Test Disclosure.
