Build high-performance apps for multicore
Source: Intel Corporation
Intel® Composer XE 2011 and Intel® C++ Composer XE 2011 combine optimized 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 upcoming Intel processor code named Sandy Bridge. It is reasonable to expect a 20 percent performance bump with a simple recompile. Incorporate the advanced parallel models and libraries to gain more.
