All these suppliers allow you to try their software before you buy

Portland Group Fortran
Portland Group are currently the only organization which makes compilers that take advantage of the massive computational ability of NVIDA graphics chips. Detailed information is available from their website. Portland Group produces high performance optimizing compilers [Fortran, C, and C++] for multicore 64 bit and 32 bit based workstations, servers, and clusters using Windows, Linux, and Mac OS X. The compilers feature fast excution of compiled code, fast compilation, graphical patrallel MPI/OpenMP debugger and profiler, unified binaries that provide optimal results for both Intel and AMD cpus, and HPF support. The Fortran compiler package is US$847 (academic US$352) for a single computer. There is also a 32 bit/64 bit PGI Visual Fortran package US$653 (academic US$407) which is bunded with a dedicated version of Visual Studio 2008. PGI maked available very low cost bulk licences for those that need a Fortran compiler for student use.

TECPLOT    There are four Tecplot products; Tecplot Focus, Tecplot 360 EX, Tecplot Chorus DE and Tecplot RS. Tecplot Focus is data plotting visualization software targeted to engineering analysis.    The considerably enhanced Tecplot 360 ex is principally for intensive fluid dynamics visualization requirements.   It is compatitive with Ensight and Fieldview in its ability to handle large data sets and animation.   Tecplot Chorus is the high end Tecplot product. It can do simultaneous comparison of a large number of Tecplot plots. Tecplot RS is Tecplot customized for reservoir simulation. Academic Tecplot licenses give access to all four Tecplot products. For details on all Tecplot products visit the Tecplot website. Our prices are just the US list prices converted to A$ using the ANZ Bank sell rate given here.

ABSOFT PRO FORTRAN  
PRO Fortran 2014 is available for Windows, Linux and Mac OSX. The Pro Fortran 2014 package automates the building of fast parallel code on AMD and Intel multicore systems and includes AVX,APO,IPO,PGFDO optimizers as well as Absoft's Dynamic AP Load balancing technology. Pro Fortran 2012 includes OpenMP support, SMP Graphical Analyzer, Absoft Windows Environment, F2003/2008 extensions, Fx3 graphical debugger, HPC Scientific Engineering math library, 2D/3D graphics and the GINO Lite GUI builder. There is provision for NVidia CUDA support and the HMPP preprocessor.

INTEL Software
In September 2014 Intel renamed almost all software products which contain a compiler as "Intel Parallel Studio XE ......". There are now 17 different Intel Parallel Studio products. The only common standalone software products are VTUNE, IMSL Library for Windows, and Intel MPI LIbrary. Intel Math Kernel Library, Intel Integrated Performance Primitives Library, Intel Inspector XE, and Intel Threading Building Blocks are now available only as components of an Intel Parallel Studio XE product. Maintenance renewal will continue to be available for the old products.

It is important to note with the exception of concurrent licences that Intel software is licenced to a specific person - not to a specific machine.   Only the licencee is allowed to use the software on a given machine.
