Came across an interesting article whose full title is actually:

Developing Applications for Netbooks and Ultra-Mobile Devices under Microsoft Windows

You can see the original article at

It talks about the development tools available from Intel to help get the best performance out of the Intel Atom processor for target platforms running Windows XP. Although there are no specifc development tools targeted at the Atom processor, some of the existing tools have specific features for the Atom.

For example, the Intel C++ Compiler has the optimisation switch /QxSSE3_ATOM.

Here are the specific references from the article:

Intel® C++ Compiler

Intel® VTune Performance Analyzer v9.1

Intel® Integrated Performance Primitives

Intel® Threading Building Blocks

Intel® Parallel Studio
