The impressive package of free tools includes:
Intel C++ Composer XE
Intel C++ Compiler (highly optimizing compiler)
Intel Math Kernel Library (high performance math library)
Intel Threading Building Blocks (C++ tasking model, most popular C++ paralllelism method)
Intel Integrated Performance Primitives (multimedia primitives library)
Intel Advisor XE (modeling proposed methods to parallelize code)
Intel VTune Amplifier XE (non-intrusive performance analysis)
Intel Inspector XE (advanced threading and memory debugging)
