"Award Winning" Intel® Parallel Studio XE

Intel® Parallel Studio XE, in the category of "Best HPC software product or technology," was honored in the annual HPCwire Readers Choice Awards. The awards are an annual feature of the publication and constitute prestigious recognition from the high performance computing community. The awards were announced and presented during the 2011 Supercomputing Conference, held in Seattle, WA. As HPCwire proclaimed, "The annual awards are highly coveted as prestigious recognition of achievement by the HPC community."

Intel® Parallel Studio XE 2011 combines enhanced optimizing compilers, libraries, error checkers and performance analyzers in a single integrated suite that enables developers to write faster, more reliable and secure code on Windows* and Linux*.

I'm very pleased to see this additional recognition for Intel Parallel Studio XE, which is used by a very large number of developers around the world. Intel just recently offered an extended version of Intel Parallel Studio XE, for developers on cluster computers (characterized in part by their use of MPI), called Intel® Cluster Studio XE. That suite contains all the award winning features of Intel Parallel Studio XE plus additional MPI support for performance, error checking and tuning in a distributed environment.
