About Intel Software

Intel System Software Division focuses on the development and innovation on Intel® core system software and platform technologies. Our core competencies include EFI/Framework firmware technologies, Linux*/open source technologies, MeeGo, virtualization technologies, OpenSolaris and System Optimization methodologies etc.


“The combination of Intel ITP with matching JTAG debugger integrated into Eclipse has saved us many man hours in customizing our bootloaders and UEFI BIOS. At the same time, our BSP engineers benefit from the VTUNE tool in ISS to find and remove hot spots in their code, thus optimizing power consumption for our SBC’s”

Intel® Parallel Studio XE

You are developing software that needs to run faster. Your software performs big data analytics, medical imaging, time-critical financial analysis, simulations (e.g., CFD or weather) or one of thousands of tasks that need to get done now. You are already using incumbent development tools (e.g., GNU, XCode* or Visual Studio*) on Linux*, OS X*, and Windows*.

What you need is a toolset that’s compatible with the way you already work and makes it easier to speed code execution. Intel Parallel Studio XE 2016 is a performance tool suite that boosts application speed by taking advantage of the ever increasing core count and vector registers width available in Intel® Xeon® processors and Intel® Xeon Phi™ coprocessors.


  • Lets you develop faster code. Boost application performance that scales on today’s and next-generation processors
  • Helps you code faster. Use a toolset that simplifies creating fast, reliable parallel code
  • Includes high-performance compiler(s), libraries, parallel models, threading and vectorization advisor, memory/threading debugger, profiler, and more.
