Intel C/C++ compilers are industry-leading, standards-based C++ compilers that are source and binary compatible with Visual C++ and have numerous vectorization and parallelism features and other extensions.
Intel C/C++ compilers are LLVM-based compilers that offer outstanding performance and include extensions that support productive development of fast multi-core, vectorized and cluster-based applications based on the Intel® architecture, with support for the latest C, C++ language, and OpenMP* standards. It supports multiple parallelism models, such as Intel® oneAPI Threading Building Blocks and Intel Performance Libraries, such as Intel® oneAPI Math Kernel Library, Intel® oneAPI Video Processing Library, Intel® Integrated Performance Primitives and more. The compiler for Windows integrates into Visual Studio.
Features & Benefits
Develop code quickly and correctly: Visual Studio or command-line your choice.
Efficiently develop, build, debug and run from the familiar Visual Studio IDE, or build and run from the command line. If you use Visual Studio, you can build mixed-language applications with C++, Visual Basic, C# and more. The compiler supports both 32- and 64-bit development - no up charge like like other compilers.
Boost application performance:
Accelerate compute by leveraging hardware acceleration features with build-in compiler optimizations such as vectorization that utilizes the ever-increasing core count and vector register width in Intel® processors with SIMD (single-instruction-multiple-data), AVX/AVX2/AVX512 (advanced vector extensions) parallelism, AMX (advanced matrix extensions), bfloat16 and more to boost application performance. The product also supports oneTBB which is a flexible STL like performance library, providing advanced threading and memory-management, that simplifies the work of adding scalable parallelism to your application.
If your application could use a performance boost, incorporate the Intel C/C++ compilers into your Visual Studio IDE and development cycle. It's optimized to take advantage of advanced processor features like multiple cores and wider vector registers for better performance. And it's a drop-in addition for C and C++ development and has broad support for current and previous C and C++ language, OpenMP standards and more.
