Intel Releases New Progra

Intel releases new programming tools. The chipmaker releases new programming tools designed to increase the performance of software written for its Pentium, Xeon and Itanium processors. [CNET] These payware compilers, available from Intel, are not for .NET, but the VTune Performance Analyzer does profile .NET apps. I'm not 100% sure on this, but I believe that it will be Intel (and not Microsoft) that makes a hyperthreading CLR available at some point. Intel is not the best at getting the word out about their development tools, so regularly browse their developer site or stay tuned here.
