SANTA CLARA, Calif., Apr. 10, 2007 — Intel Corporation today announced the availability of new versions of its IntelÂ® Thread Checker, IntelÂ® Thread Profiler, IntelÂ® VTune™ Performance Analyzer and IntelÂ® Threading Building Blocks. These software development products enable developers to create more reliable, scalable applications, and have now been enhanced for the latest multi-core processors — IntelÂ® Core™ 2 Extreme QX6800 and IntelÂ® Core™ 2 Quad Q6600 — and newest operating systems - Microsoft Vista*, Novell SUSE Linux Enterprise*, Red Hat Enterprise Linux* and Fedora Core*.
"Our Intel Core 2 processors have essential new profiling capabilities we're taking advantage of for the first time in our VTune Analyzer 9.0. Since nearly all systems shipping with Windows Vista will be multi-core systems, developers targeting Vista have been asking us for these parallelism tools," said James Reinders, director of marketing for Intel's Developer Products Division. "Developers on all operating systems want their move to parallelism well supported by development tools and we're committed to keeping up with our aggressive pace of supporting developers in as many ways as possible."
