As I continue to explore different Ultrabook capabilities, in this blog I decided to look into a powerful threading and performance optimization tool for C/C++, .NET, and FORTRAN developers who need to understand an application's serial and parallel behavior to improve performance and scalability: Intel® VTune™ Amplifier XE 2011.
In all my years in college I have used a laptop PC. Recently, I’ve been tempted to get a MacBook Air Pro because of its light-weight and stylish look. But, since starting at Intel, I’ve been able to explore and play with an Ultrabook and it has changed my mind completely. The reason is simple: Ivy Bridge Ultrabooks are just amazing! Ultrabooks will be even more amazing when you add the touch screen capability of Window 8 later this year.
Prior to Intel® AMT 6.1, if you wanted to connect to the AMT Web UI, it had to be done remotely. Starting with Intel® AMT 6.1 we are able to connect to the WebUI locally. If your system has AMT 6.0 firmware, check with your OEM's support site and there might be a newer 6.1 or 6.2 version of the FW available.
Requirements for local access:
- Administrator with User Rights
- Intel AMT must be enabled in order to log in to Web UI
- Intel AMT 6.1 or higher
Requirements for remote access:
