Intel® Parallel Studio XE

Intel bundles in the Parallel Studio XE 32- and 64-bit compiler systems for Fortran and C ++ with a variety of tools to develop high performance programs on today's multi-core PCs for use with Linux, MacOSX and Windows.
Intel® Parallel Studio XE is offered in three variants:

  • Composer Edition
  • Professional Edition
  • Cluster Edition

Their first two editions are for Fortran or C ++ and also for both languages together obtainable. The Cluster Edition includes both compiler systems. The components of the toolsuite are:

Intel© Parallel Studio XE is for C++ and Fortran programmers who are looking for capabilities beyond of those featured by the programming language. It offers not only highly optimizing compilers, but also tools that facilitate the development of parallelised applications.

Libraries with functions and routines for usual tasks are supplied: Most of the functions of Linear Algebra are covered by the MKL. Cryptographic tasks, image- and signal processing can be done by IPP. Intel Parallel Debugger and the Inspector help to find bugs. To analyse the performance of a program, to find deadlocks, race conditions and more VTune is the tool of choice. For parallelised and distributed applications, MPI is provided.

ESD Electronic software delivery:
We send a link to Intel's download center and a license key / serial number. With this your register the licensed product for you, and then you can download it. The license key or the serial number, respectively, can be used for installation. If you encounter difficulties, Intel's Support helps, or you contact us.

Intel® Parallel Studio XE Upgrades:
Intel allows customers who own an eligible (*) Intel software product with active support to upgrade to

  • Intel® Parallel Studio XE Professional Edition
  • Intel® Cluster Studio XE Edition
at a price which is significantly lower than purchasing a new licence of the Intel Studio product. Please ask, if you are interested.

(*) For details which Intel software product can be upgraded to which Intel Studio product see Intel's website. Or, you ask us.
When you order a "Upgrade SSR", please specify the serial or license number, respectively, of your Intel software product (step 3 of the order process).
For academic pricing (universities only), please contact us.
