Intel C++/Fortran compiler 9.0 tested
Posted on Tuesday, Sep 06 2005 @ 07:45 CEST by Thomas De Maesschalck
In mid June Intel released Version 9 of its C++ and Fortran compilers. The new version of compilers is not principally different from previous Version 8.1. Its main features are compiler integration for IA-32, IA-64, and EM64T (x86-64) platforms into a unified package and additional options for processors with Hyper-Threading and multi-core processors as far as code optimizations are concerned. In particular, Software-based Speculative Pre-Computation (SSP). In this article we shall analyze how fast the new version of compilers is compared to the previous version on top (or almost top) single core processors — both from Intel (Pentium 4 and Pentium M) as well as... from AMD (Athlon 64 FX-57 — of course, with some code adjustments, see below).
