Intel Parallel Studio XE 2018

Intel® Parallel Studio XE is a comprehensive suite of development tools that make it fast and easy to build modern code that gets every last ounce of performance out of the newest Intel® processors. This tool-packed suite simplifies creating code with the latest techniques in vectorization, multi-threading, multi-node, and memory optimization. Get powerful, consistent programming with Intel® Advanced Vector Extensions 512 (Intel® AVX-512) instructions for Intel® Xeon® and Xeon Phi™ processors, plus support for the latest standards and integrated development environments (IDEs). New features include the combined performance snapshot feature of Intel® VTune™ Amplifier that shows MPI, CPU, and FPU memory use; the roofline analysis feature of Intel® Advisor to find high-impact but under-optimized loops; high performance Python* to accelerate HPC—and more.

Who Needs It?
