Intel-based Macs Get Development Tools From Intel

Intel has released a number of compilers and libraries that compensates Apple’s new platform, and can be integrated with Xcode. Intelapple has made these tools to make targeting applications for the Intel Core Solo and Core Duo processors easier and the application itself will become more efficient and faster. The four tools are:

  • Intel Fortran Compiler for Mac OS: For compute-intensive applications, this compiler will maximize application performance fast and easy. This supports OpenMP. It also takes full advantage of the features in the Intel Multi-Core processors.
  • Intel C++ Compiler for MacOS: This compiler is highly optimized for the handling of demanding applications. This compiler has an advanced support for threading through OpenMP and the auto-parallelism capabilities.
  • Intel Math Kernel Library for MacOS: This library has the mathematical functions which will reduce the need for hand-coding.
  • Intel Integrated Performance Primitives for Mac OS: This library set has highly optimized functions for math, graphics, audio, video, image, etc. to enable to reduce development time.

These compilers and libraries integrate with Xcode nicely. Intel has also included the documentation for these libraries. There are free trials for each of these tools, however, if you want the full version, prepare to dig deep in to your pockets cause these are quite expensive. The Fortran compilers standard and professional versions would cost around $499/$649 respectively while the C++ compilers are around $399/549. The math library is $499 and the integrated primitives are $199.
