Programming Itanium®-based Systems

Developing High Performance Applications for Intel's New Architecture
Book Type: Intel Press Books
Category: Programming
Table of Contents:

This is the first general programming book for software application developers targeting the Itanium® processor family.

Programming Itanium-based Systems will help you to harness the power of Intel's new line of very long instruction word (VLIW) processors by providing:

Code optimization advice, including low-level explanation of what happens under the hood when code is compiled
Explanation of ways the application programmer can take advantage of the EPIC architecture's parallelism
A thorough treatment of porting applications to the Itanium environment
Unique insights into optimization and tuning of Itanium applications - including numerous examples and an extensive case history
Insight into the effective use of Itanium software development tools

This is the book for you:


If you want to know how to create, optimize, and tune application software for the Itanium architecture
If you are making the transition from 32-bit to 64-bit addressing
If you are buying your first, perhaps your only, book on the Itanium family of processors

You can find additional detailed information about the architecture in a companion book from Intel Press, Itanium Architecture for Software Developers.
