Intel C/C++ Compiler Plug-in Beta Registration and Questionnaire

We would like to invite you to participate in a Beta program for our next release of the Intel C/C++ Compiler plug-in for Win32* Systems. The goal of the program is to release a compiler that produces highly optimized code for Intel Architecture processors. The compiler is a first generation plug-in to the Microsoft* Developer Studio*.

We are looking for potential Beta sites who have demanding performance requirements. If you would like to participate and agree to

  • use the compiler
  • report problems by email, phone or fax
  • be contacted once a month during the Beta Program
  • participate in the final interview
then please complete and submit this registration form and questionnaire.

We will notify you within one (1) week of receiving the registration form whether you will be admitted to the Beta program. If you are selected to be part of our Beta program, you will receive complete information on how to download and install the compiler, plus who to contact for support.

This is a Beta version of the Intel C/C++ Compiler plug-in, and as such, it is not appropriate for the generation of any official benchmark reports. You are encouraged to compile your benchmarks and measure performance, but please check with your benchmark vendor before reporting official numbers.
