INTEL C++ and Fortran XE 2019

Intel DPD NEWBoxShots PSXE


Intel C++ and Fortran compilers include advanced optimization and multithreading capabilities along with excellent compatibility with popular development environments. It is not unreasonable to expect a speed bump just by recompiling your existing code with the Intel Compilers.

Intel offers a variety of solutions for C++, Fortran and Python developers running on Windows, Linux or Mac. Choose between the regular Intel Composer Edition and a larger suite such as Intel Professional Edition which also include advanced optimization and multithreading capabilities, highly optimized performance libraries and analysis tools for creating fast reliable multithreaded applications.

Intel Parallel Studio XE comes in three editions based on your development needs.

Composer Edition includes compilers, performance libraries, and parallel models optimized to build fast parallel code.
Professional Edition includes everything in the Composer edition. It adds performance profiler, threading, design/prototyping, and memory & thread debugger to design, build, debug and tune fast parallel code.
Cluster Edition includes everything in the Professional edition. It adds a MPI cluster communications library, along with MPI error checking and tuning to design, build, debug and tune fast parallel code that includes MPI.


Intel Parallel Studio XE comes in three key editions based on your development needs.


Intel Composer delivers outstanding performance for your applications as they run on systems using Intel® Core™ or Xeon® processors, including Intel® Xeon Phi™ coprocessors, and IA-compatible processors. It combines all the tools from Intel® C++ Composer. Visual Studio* 2012, 2013, 2015 and 2017 is a prerequisite on Windows and the gnu tool chain is supported on Linux and OS X.

  • Intel C++ Compiler - industry-leading C and C++ application performance with built-in advanced parallelism support with Intel Cilk Plus and OpenMP support.
  • Intel Fortran Compiler - industry-leading Fortran application performance with extensive support for Fortran standards, OpenMP, and more.
  • Intel Distribution for Python
  • Intel OpenMP - implement scalable parallelism using OpenMP 5.0 standard. Compatible with all C, C++, and Fortran compilers using standard APIs for simple code integration.
  • Intel Cilk Plus - the simplest way to add scalable vector and task parallelism - using only three keywords.
  • Intel Math Kernel Library - extensive C, C++, and Fortran compatible math library that uses standard APIs for simple code integration.
  • Intel Threading Building Blocks - widely used C++ template library with rich set of components to efficiently implement higher-level, task-based parallelism.
  • Intel Integrated Performance Primitives - optimised C++ library of software functions for multimedia processing, data processing, and communications applications.


The Professional Edition includes all of the functionality of the Composer Edition, plus:

  • Intel Inspector XE - quickly find memory leaks and memory allocation errors, locate difficult-to-find threading errors like data races and deadlocks and detect out of bounds accesses and dangling pointers.
  • Intel VTune Amplifer XE - collect a rich set of data to tune CPU and GPU compute performance, multicore scalability, bandwidth, and more. Sort, filter, and visualise results for quick insight into performance bottlenecks and automate regression tests and collect data remotely using the powerful command line.
  • Intel Advisor XE - analyse, design, tune, and check your threading design before implementation, explore and test threading options without disrupting normal development and predict thread errors and performance scaling on systems with more cores.


The Cluster Edition includes all of the functionality of the Composer and Professional Editions, plus:

  • Intel MPI Library - performance-optimised MPI Library with sustained scalability: low latencies, higher bandwidth, and increased processes.
  • Intel Trace Analyzer and Collector - powerful MPI communications profiling and analysis with low overhead and effective visualization.

Intel Parallel Studio XE 2019 Product Brief


Following matrix explains which products that are included in the different product editions




Intel Parallel Studio XE is offered as a perpetual license with no timeout. 1year support and maintenance is always included in the initial purchase. Two licensing models are available:

1. Named user is a system-locked license, and products are priced per named user.
2. Floating licenses can be shared by multiple users simultaneously on several systems, managed from a licensing server. Two- or five-seat licenses are available. When a license is released from one user, another user can request it.

Student and academic licenses are offered seperately.
