"Continuing its efforts to establish Linux as a commercially
viable platform, SGI (NYSE: SGI) today announced the release of its
SGI Pro64 compilers for the Intel Itanium processor to the Open
Source Software Community. These Linux compilers, which were
recently demonstrated at Intel's Spring 2000 Developer Forum in
Palm Springs, Calif., contain additional optimizations that take
advantage of the power of the Itanium processor over those of other
public compiler implementations. This technology will support
development of high performance IA-64 Linux applications and is
another important step toward delivery of production Linux
solutions on IA-64."
"The continued optimization of these software tools will enable
Application Developers to realize the potential of Intel's Itanium
processor," said Ron Curry, director of marketing, IA-64 processor
division, Intel. "The Pro64 suite release demonstrates SGI's
compiler expertise and their progress towards enabling high
performance IA-64 Linux software."
"SGI's C, C++ and Fortran 90 compilers use the company's code
generators, designed to produce performance enhancements in both
compute -- and data-intensive applications. The compiler suite
represents ongoing work that SGI and the Linux developer community
will continue to enhance to deliver optimized performance when
production Itanium processors arrive later this year. The compiler
source is being released to the Linux developer community under
standard GPL licensing."
