Don't know, haven't used it extensively for codes.  Tried their C/C++ 
compiler.  Took quite a bit of effort to get it to work with the 
autoconf/gnu toolchain.  Almost gave up (e.g. it wasn't worth the effort 
anyway). GCC gave about the same performance in some cases, and about 
20% less in others.
