Intel Corp. announced new tools for software developers to help build threaded applications and extract the best performance from applications on multi-core platforms. The Intel Compilers v9.0 for C++ and fortran programming languages are designed to help software developers deliver improved performance for their applications running on platforms from handheld devices to desktops, laptops, servers and super computers. These compilers also help improve security protection in Linux and Windows applications.

"As demand increases for multi-core platforms, there is an opportunity for software vendors to add performance, features and innovations to their products concurrent with this major architecture shift," said Bill Savage, GM of Intel's Software Products Division. "As one of the most technically advanced compilers in the world, the Intel Compilers v9.0 enable C++ and Fortran developers to accelerate the development of their applications for multi-core and threaded environments."

The Intel Compilers v9.0 include an auto-parallelization option that automatically seeks opportunities in applications to create multiple execution threads, and fully supports OpenMP 2.5 plus some additional support for proposed future extensions. Innovations in the compilers allow software developers to debug even the optimized code generated by these new compilers, an advancement which eases the final steps in deploying an application. Traditionally, the use of an optimizer made debugging difficult or impossible, said Intel.

The tools also offer application-level security support options for Linux environments, matching the security features for Windows environments by reducing buffer overflow vulnerabilities.

Version 9.0 of the Intel C++ Compiler is already available, starting at $399 for either Windows or Linux versions. Version 9.0 of the Intel Fortran Compiler is also available, with prices starting at $499 for Windows or Linux versions.
