Parallel Studio launches, free add-on Advisor available

May 25, 2009

I'm happy to announce we're shipping Intel Parallel Studio and we have one "surprise" addition ready today too (Parallel Advisor Lite on WhatIf.intel.com). I think this is going to be a pretty big deal for C/C++ developers on Windows.  Try it out (yes, evaluation versions are available for "try before you buy") - let me know how it works for you!

Intel has started to ship Intel Parallel Studio. This extend Visual Studio with many capabilities to write, verify and tune parallel programs.

In addition, Intel is offering a free add-on called Parallel Advisor on WhatIf.intel.com, for  Parallel Studio to assist in finding the best places to add parallelism to your application. Instead of trying (and failing) to automate the addition of parallelism in an application, the tool focuses on how to accelerate the exploration that a developer would go through in deciding what approach is best.

Evaluation copies of Parallel Studio are available for a free test drive.
