    • Full Fortran 2008 and initial Fortran 2015 (in draft).
    • Python 2.7 and 3.6.
    • Initial OpenMP* 5.0 (in draft).
    • Visual Studio* 2017 integration.
  • Quickly spot high-payoff opportunities for faster code using a combined performance snapshot for MPI, CPU, FPU, and memory use.
  • Easily access the latest Intel® Performance Libraries and Intel® Distribution for Python* via APT GET, YUM, and Conda*.
  • Immediately use new, broader redistribution rights for Intel® Performance Libraries and Intel Distribution for Python.

Intel Parallel Studio 2018 comes in three editions:

  • Composer edition helps to optimise the build part of the coding process.
