Note: unconfirmed indicates that although it might build, it doesn't mean that it will work as intended.


2.2 Intel C++ Compiler (ICC)

Description
This compiler is free for non-commercial users on Linux. Yields good/very good performance on Intel processors.
Comments
Latest GCC versions (4.5.0 and above) have been proven themselves to be on par or better than ICC.
It's not advisable to use ICC on non-Intel (AMD, Via, etc) machines - source: ICC on Wikipedia, section Criticism. But it's possible to use it if the option -SSE3 is not used:

Compatibility matrix

  1. Compiling with GCC 4.7 requires two details: having the latest 1.6-ext commit, as well as a couple of hacks to make sure that things build as intended. Both can indications can be found in the instructions of installing 1.6-ext on Ubuntu 13.04, which uses GCC 4.7.3.
