How do you pick the right programming models and tools that boost application performance? As microprocessors transition from clock speed as the primary vehicle for performance gains to features such as multiple cores, wider vectors and increasing vector instruction sets, it’s increasingly important for software developers to optimize their applications to fully utilize the inherent capabilities of the hardware. However, developers often don’t realize specialized tools are now available to help them fully utilize these capabilities.

This 8-page white paper explains the available hardware features, lists options for tools, describes each tool in more detail, and asks frank questions to help developers determine the right tool for their application. If you’re a programmer working in a C, C++ or Fortran environment and are willing to make a few code changes, read on to learn how companies large and small are experiencing outstanding improvements in their applications performance – by using Intel’s software tools.

Thanks for this crystal clear and concise guide. 

I saw that you included Rogue Wave in the final table. Are you planning to make available some kind of app/lib store, or intel labeling for third party software that would help parallel programming? Maybe it would be positive for the entire industry to encourage the creation of a parallel programming ecosystem around Intel.

Txs again for all your efforts toward this new programming paradigm.
