Intel cluster toolkit compiler edition for Windows and Linux and Intel compiler suite professional edition for Windows and Linux have been released with support for 45nm next generation Intel Core 2 and Intel Xeon family processors (Penryn).
These new high performance software tools are now available from Hearne Scientific Software.
The Intel cluster toolkit compiler edition 3.1 provides an extensive software package containing Intel C++ and Intel Fortran compilers for Intel IA-32, IA-64 and Intel 64 architectures, plus it includes all the Intel cluster tools that help you develop, analyse and optimise performance of parallel applications on Linux or Windows CCS clusters.
The Intel compiler suite professional edition for Linux and Windows offers good support for creating multi-threaded applications.
The suite includes Intel C++ and Fortran compilers with advanced optimisation, multi-threading and processor support that includes automatic processor dispatch, vectorisation, auto-parallelisation, OpenMP, data prefetching, and loop unrolling, along with highly optimised C++ templates for parallelism, math processing and multimedia libraries.
The Intel Clovertown quad core chips are used in many supercomputers. The majority of the remaining Intel based systems use Intel dual core processors.
Intel software development tools are the fast and easy way to maximise new features of Intel's hyper-threading technology, dual processors and multi-core processors.
Intel cluster toolkit compiler edition for Windows and Linux and Intel compiler suite professional edition for Windows and Linux support 45nm next generation Intel Core 2 and Intel Xeon family processors (Penryn).
Intel 45nm high-k (Hi-k) metal gate silicon technology is the next-generation Intel Core microarchitecture.
With roughly twice the density of Intel 65nm technology, Intel's 45nm packs about double the number of transistors into the same silicon space. That is more than 400 million transistors for dual-core processors and more than 800 million for quad-core.
Intel's 45nm technology enables great performance leaps, up to 50% larger L2 cache, and new levels of breakthrough energy efficiency.
The quad-core Intel Xeon processor series, based on the Intel Core microarchitecture offers good scalable performance and virtualisation for server consolidation.
User can experience up to 2x greater scalable performance, 2.5x greater virtualisation performance and 3x performance per watt. These quad-core-based servers enable you to be more productive and reduce data center space, power and administration/operation costs by consolidating your data center onto fewer servers.
The Intel developer webinar series continues with a new lineup of relevant technical sessions to help you get the most out of multi-core. Intel experts provide insights on threading and parallelism tools and methodologies used to optimise application performance.
Intel software development products provide software developers with the tools to take advantage of the latest Intel processor technologies.
