Intel® Parallel Studio XE 2016 Beta program has started!


The Intel® Parallel Studio XE 2016 Beta program is now available!

In this beta test, you will have early access to Intel® Parallel Studio XE 2016 products and the opportunity to provide feedback to help make our products better. Registration is easy through the pre-Beta survey site.

This suite of products brings together exciting new technologies along with improvements to Intel’s existing software development tools:

  • Expanded Standards and Features – Scaling Development Efforts Forward
    Additional language support for C11 and C++14, Fortran 2008 Submodules and IMPURE ELEMENTAL, and C Interoperability from Fortran 2015, and OpenMP* 4.1 TR 3.  New support for SIMD operator use with SSE integer types, Intel® Cilk™ Plus combined Parallel and SIMD loops, OpenMP* 4.0 user-defined reductions (C++ only), enhanced uninitialized variable detection (Fortran only), feature improvements to Intel’s Language Extensions for Offload, annotated source listings, and a new directory structure.  All available in the Intel® C/C++ and Fortran Compiler 16.0 Beta.
  • Vectorization – Boost Performance by Utilizing Vector Instructions/Units
    Vectorization Advisor identifies new vectorization opportunities as well as improvements to existing vectorization and highlights them in your code.  It makes actionable coding recommendations to boost performance and estimates the speedup. Available in the new Intel® Advisor XE 2016 Beta!
  • Big Data Analytics – Easily Build IA Optimized Data Analytics Application
    Intel® Data Analytics Acceleration Library (DAAL) 2016 Beta will help data scientists speed through big data challenges with optimized IA functions
  • The Intel® Math Kernel Library 11.3 Beta introduces Inspector - Executor API for Sparse BLAS: a new two-stage API for sparse Matrix Vector Multiplication format, as well as MPI wrappers to support custom MPI Implementations
  • The Intel® Integrated Performance Primitives 9.0 Beta adds new APIs to support external threading – a feature which allows users to choose different threading approaches for the applications
  • Scalable MPI Analysis – Fast & Lightweight Analysis for 32K+ Ranks
    Intel® Trace Analyzer and Collector 9.1 Beta adds a new MPI Performance Snapshot feature for easy-to-use, scalable MPI statistics collection and analysis of large MPI jobs to identify areas for improvement
  • Enhanced OpenMP* analysis and MPI+OpenMP multi-rank analysis
    Intel® VTune™ Amplifier 2016 Beta adds OpenMP parallelization inefficiency, imbalance and work sharing analysis to tune for more efficient use of parallel regions.  It also now supports multi-rank analysis of MPI compute nodes with or without OpenMP use.
