New development suites include Parallel Studio XE 2013 and Cluster Studio XE 2013
Intel has released two new development suites which include Parallel Studio XE 2013 and Cluster Studio XE 2013, which are claimed to enhance performance of applications on new processors.
The enhanced compilers, libraries and analysis tools featured in the new integrated suites are expected to assist developers in developing enhanced applications.
The new development suites will support next-generation processors which include Intel Xeon Phi coprocessors, and support for Java, C++ and Fortran.
According to Intel, new suites will support newer processors and coprocessors including support for Ivy Bridge microarchitecture, Haswell microarchitecture and the Intel Xeon Phi Coprocessor
The new products offer default support for Intel Many Integrated Core (MIC) Architecture which are employed by Intel Xeon Phi Coprocessors as part of compilers, libraries, debug and performance analysis tools.
Both development suites are compatible with the latest standards which include MPI 2.2, C++ 11 and Fortran 2008.
Capabilities of the new products include conditional numeric reproducibility, pointer checking, sleep state analysis (for power) and memory heap growth analysis.
These tools also facilitate access to performance through easy recompiles and simple relinks with Intel libraries, while offering various capabilities for programmers including tracking the sources of TLB misses, data races or suggestion on parallelisation approaches.
Intel said that the new software development products include compilers, libraries, parallel programming models, design assistance, debugging and performance analysis tools.
