  You can download a beta now, though it doesn't support cross-compiling, 
so you need an Opteron system.  I recently used it to benchmark a code and 
was thoroughly impressed.  I haven't yet run that same code on an Opteron 
via the Intel compilers, but I should have a system arriving soon and will 
certainly try that out to see the difference.

  PGI v5.0 Beta:
