New Intel compiler version - still the same!
Author:  Date: 2010-11-29 00:59
Thanks for all of your excellent analysis of the Intel compiler behavior on Intel and AMD hardware.
I wanted to inform you of another alternative to using either the new Intel compiler or the GNU tools for
x86 (Intel and AMD) systems. Sun Microsystems, now part of Oracle, offers a great
developer tool suite... and it is free for both development and production usage.
The Oracle Solaris Studio suite includes C, C++, and Fortran compilers, along with a number of
advanced tools (such as, a dbx debugger and a performance analyzer). All of these tools support
both Intel and AMD hardware via command-line options while the default is an architecture type
of "generic" which tries to balance performance for both chips sets in one binary. It is an impressive
free set of tools and can be downloaded from: www.oracle.com/goto/solarisstudio (even though the
name is *Solaris* Studio, there is a Linux download for it as well). I think you'll find the performance
comparable to, and in some cases, better than(!) the Intel compiler on both the Intel and AMD chip sets.

Regards,
--Don
