Intel® Composer XE and Intel® C++ Composer XE combine optimizing compilers with high-performance libraries, advanced vectorization, and Intel® Parallel Building Blocks, speeding and simplifying threading and performance on Linux* and Windows* with the same code base.
The performance-oriented features offered by Intel Composer XE equip developers to use C/C++ and Fortran to develop and maintain high-performance and enterprise applications on the latest Intel® Architecture processors, including the latest 2nd Generation Intel® Core™ Processors (code named Sandy Bridge). It is reasonable to expect a 20 percent performance bump with a simple recompile. Incorporate the advanced parallel processing models and libraries to gain more. Your mileage may vary so download a parallel programming evaluation to see how it works on your code.
Intel® C++ Composer XE offers the same benefits for developers only needing the C++ compiler.
Intel® Fortran Composer XE offers the same benefits for developers only needing the Fortran compiler.
Performance - Build faster code with less effort by utilizing an optimizing compiler combined with advanced parallel programming models and libraries
Compatible - Source and binary compatible with Microsoft Visual C++* and GCC
Broad Support - Runs on Windows* and Linux* in IDE or standalone
