Intel Architecture Platform Terminology for Development Tools

Intel Architecture Platform Terminology for Development Tools

Intel® compilers and libraries support three platforms: general combinations of processor architecture and operating system type. This section explains the terms that Intel uses to describe the platforms in its documentation, installation procedures and support site.  Note: not all Intel software development tools support all three platforms.

IA-32 Architecture refers to systems based on 32-bit processors generally compatible with the Intel Pentium® II processor, (for example, Intel® Pentium® 4 processor or Intel® Xeon® processor), or processors from other manufacturers supporting the same instruction set, running a 32-bit operating system.

Intel® 64 Architecture (formerly Intel® EM64T)refers to systems based on IA-32 architecture processors which have 64-bit architectural extensions, (for example, Intel® Core™2 processor family), running a 64-bit operating system such as Microsoft Windows Vista* x64 or a Linux* "x86_64" variant. If the system is running a 32-bit  operating system, then IA-32 architecture applies instead. Systems based on AMD* processors running a 64-bit operating system are also supported by Intel compilers for Intel® 64 architecture applications.

64-bit computing on Intel architecture requires a computer system with a processor, chipset, BIOS, operating system, device drivers and applications enabled for Intel® 64 architecture. Performance will vary depending on your hardware and software configurations. Consult ...
