Intel Software Development Tools Beta for Mac OS

Intel is offering a free trial of the following products for MacIntel developers:

  • Intel® C Compiler for Mac OS
  • Intel® Fortran Compiler for Mac OS
  • Intel® Math Kernel Library for Mac OS
  • Intel® Integrated Performance Primitives for Mac OS
I'm not sure much of this would be of interest without a machine running OSx86. Also, I'd be interested to see if these are really necessary in light of the offerings Apple gives to developers. Perhaps in the interest of science someone might enlighten me to the advantages of using an Intel C compiler versus using gcc on OS X? Would the advantages be arbitrary or based on coding style?
