Intel today announced new software tools to help developers design, analyze
and optimize applications running on Intel-based platforms supporting Intel®
Extended Memory 64 Technology (Intel® EM64T). Intel software products with
support for Intel EM64T, which allows computing platforms to access larger
amounts of memory, include the Intel® Compilers, Intel® Integrated Performance
Primitives, the Intel® VTune(TM) Performance Analyzers and the Intel® Math
Kernel Library. These tools support Windows* and Linux* operating systems, and
can be used with Intel® Xeon(TM) and Intel® Pentium® 4 processor-based servers
and workstations. The tools can also be used for future Intel-based PCs that
support Intel EM64T.

The Intel Compilers, version 8.1, are currently available for the suggested
list prices: Intel C++ Compilers 8.1 for Windows: $ 399; Intel C++ Compiler 8.1
for Linux: $ 399; Intel Visual Fortran Compiler 8.1 for Windows, Professional
Edition: $ 1,399; Intel Visual Fortran Compiler 8.1 for Windows, Standard
Edition: $ 499; Intel Visual Fortran Compiler 8.1 for Linux: $ 699. The Intel
Integrated Performance Primitives and the Intel Math Kernel Library are
currently available for the suggested list prices of $ 199 and $ 399,
respectively. The Intel® VTune(TM) Performance Analyzers with support for Intel
EM64T will be available later this year for the suggested list price of $ 699.

Intel today announced new software tools to help developers design, analyze
and optimize applications running on Intel-based platforms supporting Intel®
Extended Memory 64 Technology (Intel® EM64T). Intel already offers similar
products for its Intel® Itanium® 2 processor family.

Intel software products with support for Intel EM64T, which allows computing
platforms to access larger amounts of memory, include the Intel® Compilers,
Intel® Integrated Performance Primitives, the Intel® VTune(TM) Performance
Analyzers and the Intel® Math Kernel Library. These tools support Windows* and
Linux* operating systems, and can be used with Intel® Xeon(TM) and Intel®
Pentium® 4 processor-based servers and workstations.

The tools can also be used for future Intel-based PCs that support Intel EM64T.
Intel plans to introduce this technology in its desktop processor line when
commensurate operating system support is available.

"Developers understand that turning 32-bit code into 64-bit code is not easy,
regardless of whether an Intel platform or a competitive component is being
used," said Jonathan Khazam, general manager of Intel’s Software Products
Division. "Intel offers software developers the expertise and tools for Intel
EM64T to make the job easier and application performance remarkably better."

Intel also included additional new features in version 8.1 of its compilers,
providing a significant boost in application performance across a variety of
benchmarks. Intel C++ Compiler for Linux, version 8.1, includes the Eclipse*
integrated development environment (IDE) and the C Developers Toolkit for use
with the Intel 32-bit C++ compiler. Eclipse is one of the leading IDEs on Linux,
and offers improved programmer productivity through the integration of commonly
used Linux development tools, including the Intel C++ Compiler. Intel also
enhanced the Intel® Code Coverage Tool and Intel® Test Prioritization Tool to
speed application testing. The threading and thread-support capabilities of
Intel Compilers were also improved to help developers build multi-threaded
applications that take advantage of Hyper-Threading Technology.

The Intel® Software Development Products, including Intel® Compilers, Intel®
Integrated Performance Primitives, Intel® VTune(TM) Performance Analyzers and
the Intel® Math Kernel Library, are a full suite of tools that can help
developers easily create the fastest software possible on Intel architecture.
Intel’s tools are compatible with the leading development environments available
today, and are easy to use with the tools developers are already utilizing to
tune their software. More information on these products is available at
www.intel.com/software/products.

The Intel Compilers, version 8.1, are currently available for the suggested list
prices: Intel C++ Compilers 8.1 for Windows: $ 399; Intel C++ Compiler 8.1 for
Linux: $ 399; Intel Visual Fortran Compiler 8.1 for Windows, Professional
Edition: $ 1,399; Intel Visual Fortran Compiler 8.1 for Windows, Standard
Edition: $ 499; Intel Visual Fortran Compiler 8.1 for Linux: $ 699.

The Intel Integrated Performance Primitives and the Intel Math Kernel Library
are currently available for the suggested list prices of $ 199 and $ 399,
respectively.

The Intel® VTune(TM) Performance Analyzers with support for Intel EM64T will be
available later this year for the suggested list price of $ 699.

In addition to its advanced software tools, Intel offers its customers the
latest technical expertise in 64-bit capabilities through Intel® Solution
Services, Intel’s worldwide professional services organization. Intel Solution
Services consultants can work side-by-side with developers to help them better
understand and enhance the performance and scalability of their software
applications, while taking advantage of the latest features available on Intel
platforms.
