    Phoronix: Intel Fully Embracing LLVM For Their C/C++ Compilers

    Intel's next-generation C/C++ compilers are fully leveraging the LLVM compiler stack in place of their former propritary compiler code-base. Intel has "complete[d] adoption" of LLVM moving forward for their C/C++ compiler needs...

    Congratulations to Intel on a step toward killing ICC. It is always hard to make a jump like this.

              Oops! I forgot!


              But LLVM is available as option to use with Visual Studio

                Hoping that the staff working on their compilers will now contribute full steam to llvm, and that it's not a way to just cut costs.

                  "Looks like it's time to fire up some new Intel compiler benchmarks on Linux...."

                  Indeed.

                  Err... You will include comparisons on both i*Lake and Vermeer, right?

                    What's the purpose of creating another C++ compiler on top of LLVM instead of just contributing to Clang? Are Intel's optimizations too specific/divergent from Clang's architecture?
