Fanatical about performance

Our philosophy on performance is simple, but serious. The best benchmark is your code. If your application isn't the fastest when compiling with the EKOPath compiler it's a bug and we want to know about it.

HPC and multi-core focused

Some of the world's fastest super computers use the EKOPath compiler for one reason, performance. However, you don't have to own or work on a supercomputer to take advantage of the EKOPath optimizations. We know that every C, C++ and Fortran developer has an increasing need to exploit the capabilities of modern multi-core hardware. We try to make the wealth of advanced optimizations in the compiler both easy to use and effective for AMD, Intel and all modern processors.

Quality assurance

Rigorously tested

We put a huge amount of time, effort and energy in ensuring that every release of the compiler is of the highest quality. We know that even a single regression can cost significant time verifying and validating results. Our test harness checks against all the most popular language conformance test suites, thousands of in-house tests, dozens of scientific libraries, customer provided code, popular open source applications and across a range of Intel and AMD processors to ensure the best performance.

Pain free support
