Intel Parallel Studio XE 2019 Cluster Studio

Intel DPD NEWBoxShots PSXE


As the relentless pursuit of compute capacity of HPC systems have shifted to multicore systems, and soon to mixed multicore and many-core systems, the compute power of the hardware is scaling at faster than 2x Moore’s Law. Software development solutions and tools need to scale to meet the developers needs to utilize these systems.

Intel Parallel Studio Cluster Edition  meets the challenges facing HPC developers by providing, for the first time, a comprehensive suite of tools that enables developers to boost HPC application performance and reliability. It combines Intel’s proven cluster tools with Intel’s advanced threading/memory correctness analysis and performance profiling tools to enable scaling application development for today’s and tomorrow’s HPC cluster systems

Intel Parallel Studio Cluster Edition includes the next-generation software development tools:

  • Intel MPI Library – Highly scalable and interconnect independent low latency MPI library
  • Intel Trace Analyzer and Collector – MPI communications performance profiler
  • Intel C, C++ and Fortran Compilers – Industry-leading compilers
  • Intel MKL and Intel® IPP – Performance libraries for math and multimedia
  • Intel Threading Building Blocks and Intel® Cilk™ Plus – Parallel programming models based on threading
  • Intel Advisor XE – Threading assistant for C/C++, C#, and Fortran applications using thread-based parallelism on the master node of a cluster
  • Intel VTune™ Amplifier XE – Performance & thread profiler is MPI enabled on every node
  • Intel Inspector XE – Memory and thread checker is MPI enabled on every node
  • Static Analysis – Locate difficult to find defects
  • Intel MPI Benchmarks - An open source set of MPI and cluster benchmark kernels


Highlights of Intel Parallel Studio Cluster Edition

Scale Performance
Superior shared, distributed, or hybrid application performance through industry leading Intel compilers, parallel models and libraries with advanced performance optimizations for today’s multicore and tomorrow’s many-core processors in HPC clusters.

  • MPI Latency - Intel MPI Library is up to 6.5X as fast as alternative MPI libraries
  • Compiler Performance –Industry leading Intel C, C++ & Fortran compilers
  • Thread Profiling & Tuning – Intel VTune Amplifier XE now MPI enabled for every node 

Scale Forward
Intel Cluster Studio XE provides the tools, programming models, and performance libraries that enable developers to develop code that scales on Intel Xeon Processors today while easily extending to the Intel® Many Integrated Core (Intel MIC) architecture.

  • MPI Capacity – Intel MPI Library scales beyond 90k processes
  • Parallel Programming Models – Commercially supported Intel versions of open source Intel® Threading Building Blocks (Intel® TBB) and Intel Cilk Plus for threading parallelism 

Scale Efficiency
The impact of budget and schedule pressure makes it crucial to have the right tools and
programming models to rapidly develop and deploy reliable HPC applications. Intel Cluster Studio
XE delivers powerful threading and correctness tools for hybrid applications development and
parallel programming models that are simple to adopt.

  • Thread & Memory Correctness– Intel Inspector XE now MPI enabled for every node
  • MPI Correctness– Increased productivity in finding MPI errors.
  • Rapid Performance Profiling – Intel VTune Amplifier finds hotspots faster
  • Parallel Programming Models – Parallelize code using three keywords with Intel® Cilk™ Plus and Intel TBB templates for simple and robust scalable task based parallelism

Intel Parallel Studio XE 2019 Product Brief


Following matrix explains which products that are included in the different product editions




Intel Parallel Studio XE is offered as a perpetual license with no timeout. 1year support and maintenance is always included in the initial purchase. Two licensing models are available:

1. Named user is a system-locked license, and products are priced per named user.
2. Floating licenses can be shared by multiple users simultaneously on several systems, managed from a licensing server. Two- or five-seat licenses are available. When a license is released from one user, another user can request it.

Student and academic licenses are offered seperately.
