Intel C++ Compiler 11.1 for QNX hits the streets

For anyone who wants to optimize the performance of their QNX Neutrino applications on Intel processors, Intel has just released version 11.1 of its C++ Compiler Professional Edition for the QNX Neutrino RTOS.

According to Intel, the compiler is validated for Windows XP hosts and includes the Intel Integrated Performance Primitives (Intel IPP) v6.1.1.044. These primitives provide optimized routines for multimedia, signal processing, and data communication.

The compiler, which integrates with the QNX Momentics IDE, offers a significant performance gain over the standard GCC compiler. Developers can download the Intel compiler free, with community support, from the Intel Web site. Commercial support is optional.

You can use the compiler with versions 6.4.0 and 6.4.1 of the QNX Neutrino RTOS and QNX Momentics IDE.

ADDENDUM: Thanks to the persistance of "Stay" (see comments below), we now have a download URL for the compiler:

Thanks Stay! I was worried that I was the only one having trouble finding it. Figured everyone else was just smarter than me. :-)

Unfortunately we currently have some problems with web links. We are working to sort this out. I will update this thread when download is fully functional. I apologize for any delay.

It ends up being: http://www.intel.com/cd/software/products/asmo-na/eng/compilers/413513.htm

Here is what Intel had to say:
We have now resolved the problem with the web links so you should now be able to download the latest compiler package for QNX* Neutrino* RTOS. You find the compiler tool under product > software > compiler products on our web site. Open up the pdf file describing the Compiler product for QNX* Neutrino* RTOS and follow the link in the introduction. I apologize again for any inconvenience this delay has caused.
