Intel Parallel Studio XE Professional Edition is a programming tool for Windows PCs.

Programming tools should be fast, reliable, and relatively easy to use. They don't have to be simple or friendly to novices, but they shouldn't get in the way of programming. It's unfortunate, then, that so many programming tools fail to meet all three of those relatively simple criteria. Fortunately, Intel Parallel Studio XE Professional Edition does hit all of the high points necessary for good programming and does so in a manner that will keep most users happy. The only issues with the program come from outside the utility of the tool itself.

This is a good tool if you want to program quickly in C++, Fortran, or Python. This isn't something that's going to fail very often, and it's certainly not a tool that's going to cause you many headaches. It's not easy to use by any stretch of the imagination, but it's definitely within the bounds set by the competition. This, as the name would suggest, is a tool for professionals and should be judged by those values. Novices will probably get a headache when trying to use this studio, but professionals will appreciate everything that it offers.

If you are a professional programmer, this is a great program for you. It does have a hefty price tag, and you're going to have to get used to putting time into learning the program. If you are willing to put in the effort and you don't mind paying, though, you're not going to find much better on the market. This is an investment in your professional future, not just a simple programming tool.

Pros

  • Fast, reliable, and relatively easy to use
  • Truly professional tool

Cons

  • Not for novices
  • Hefty price tag
