Intel has announced development support and tools for Intel-based Macs. Intel Compilers and Libraries help software developers deliver improved performance for their applications running on the new Apple iMac and MacBook Pro platforms based on Intel processors. These products provide a fast and easy way to get maximum application performance and integrate with the Xcode development environment.
Intel Fortran Compiler for Mac OS
This compiler provides a fast and easy way to get maximum application performance for compute-intensive applications. This compiler supports OpenMP and auto-parallelism to take advantage of performance features available in Intel Multi-Core processors.
Intel C++ Compiler for Mac OS
This highly optimized compiler handles the most demanding applications. Intel augments the compiler with advanced support for threading through OpenMP and auto-parallelism capabilities.
Intel Math Kernel Library for Mac OS
This library is a set of highly optimized, thread-safe, mathematical functions that reduces the need for hand-coding and allows developers to achieve outstanding performance for engineering, scientific, and financial applications.
Intel Integrated Performance Primitives for Mac OS
This library set enables software developers to achieve maximum application performance and reduce development time by providing highly optimized functions for math, graphics, multimedia, audio, video, speech, computer vision, image, cryptography, and signal processing.
A free trial of Intel Software Development Products for Mac OS is available to developers through a special beta program. Intel Compliers and Libraries yield significant performance advantages for Mac OS applications as these products unleash the power of concurrent program execution provided by multi-core Intel processors.
Developers can try the tools now through a free special beta program. More info here.
