Intel® Parallel Studio XE 2020

Intel® Parallel Studio XE 2020

Modernize Code for Performance, Scalability, and Portability

New features for 2020 include:

  • Write applications that scale with improved parallel performance on the latest Intel® Xeon® and Intel® Core™ processors using Intel® Advanced Vector Extensions 512 (Intel® AVX-512) instructions.

  • Vectorize and thread your code using OpenMP* to take advantage of the latest SIMD-enabled hardware, including Intel AVX-512.
  • Speed up AI inferencing with compilers from Intel, Intel® Performance Libraries, and analysis tools that support Intel® Deep Learning Boost with Vector Neural Network Instructions (VNNI) in 2nd generation Intel® Xeon® Scalable processors.
  • Develop for large memories of up to 512 GB DIMMs with persistence. Identify, optimize, and tune Intel platforms for Intel® Optane™ DC persistent memory using Intel® VTune™ Profiler.
  • Use extended coarse-grain profiling with platform-level collection and analysis in Intel VTune Profiler to understand and optimize platform configuration for applications.
  • Perform cache simulation insights for vectorization with roofline analysis for L1, L2, L3, and DRAM in Intel® Advisor.
  • Support for the HPC cloud helps you take advantage of the AWS* Parallel Cluster* and AWS Elastic Fabric Adapter for low-latency, high-bandwidth communications for MPI applications with the Intel® MPI Library.
  • Stay up to date with the latest standards and integrated development environments (IDE):
    • Full C++ 2017 support with initial C++20 support
    • Full Fortran 2008 and expanded Fortran 2018
    • Python 3.7 support
    • Full OpenMP 4.5 and initial OpenMP 5.0 draft
    • Microsoft Visual Studio* 2019 integration
  • Supports an additional operating system: Amazon Linux 2*.
