Exponential Innovation with Intel® Software

Ensuring hardware reaches its potential with full-stack, cross-architecture solutions.

Unleashing Hardware Through a Software-First Approach

For every order of magnitude performance that’s available with our new hardware architectures, there are multiple orders of magnitude performance that can be enabled by software. To support this exponential scaling, Intel has created a common set of tools that help developers unleash the potential of hardware through open source, developer-first initiatives and products. We are working tirelessly to enable the future of computing through our full-stack solutions that are powered by software that is performant, open, and productive.
