Intel Announces Multicore, Threaded Application Development Tools For Apple Developers
Intel announced new software development tools and resources through its Intel Software Network. These are to help Apple developers take advantage of Intel Core Duo processor technologies to maximize application performance on the new Intel–based Mac platforms.
The special beta versions of the Intel Fortran Compiler, Intel C++ Compiler, Intel Math Kernel Library and Intel Integrated Performance Primitives are available now. Intel will also provide other resources to assist with software optimization, dual core threading and migration information.
These development tools are integrated into Apple’s Xcode development environment and offer an alternative to existing tools and compilers. Intel augments these compilers with advanced support for threading through OpenMP and auto–parallelism capabilities.
The suite of development tools from Intel will be available for purchase in the second quarter of 2006, and are now available for free trial in the special beta program.
