In this special guest feature, Intel’s John Hengeveld describes the effort that went into building the fastest supercomputer on Earth. Milky Way 2 is amazing.. and whats more amazing is… you can build a similar system for your needs. So by now you have all heard about the MilkyWay 2 system in China that has […]
Over at Dr. Dobbs, Rob Farber has posted a tutorial on using MPI to tie together thousands of Intel Xeon Phi coprocessors. Farber uses his MPI code example on the Stampede supercomputer at TACC, achieving a remarkable 2.2 Petaflops of performance when running on 3000 nodes. This article demonstrates how to utilize Intel Xeon Phi […]
Over at Go Parallel, Jeff Cogswell has posted a glowing review of the new book from Colfax entitled: Parallel Programming and Optimization with Intel Xeon Phi Coprocessors. As readers of this blog well know, Xeon Phi coprocessors require some advanced parallel programming techniques. Colfax took it upon themselves to create a complete course for their […]
Over at Tom’s Hardware, Niels Broekhuijsen writes that new information has surfaced regarding Intel’s upcoming Xeon Phi coprocessors. Intel’s product database has been updated, and it now shows five new Xeon Phi co-processors. These five are followups of the original Xeon 5110P, SE10P, and SE10X models. Two lighter Xeon Phi 3100 parts have shown up: […]
In this video from the 2013 Open Fabrics Developer Workshop, Bill Magro from Intel presents: Intel MPI Library: Implementation for Intel Xeon Phi Based Clusters. Download the slides (PDF). In this follow-up session, DK Panda from Ohio State University presents: MVAPICH2 for Intel MIC. You can check out more OFA videos at our Open Fabrics […]
In this video from the 2013 Open Fabrics Developer Workshop, Robert Woodruff from Intel presents: OFS for the Intel Xeon Phi. Download the slides (PDF). You can check out more OFA videos at our Open Fabrics Workshop Video Gallery.
Over at TOP500.org, Michael Feldman from Intersect360 Research writes that the recently retired 1 Petaflop Roadrunner supercomputer set the stage for today’s hybrid supercomputers. In retrospect, Roadrunner could be viewed as a something of a design cul-de-sac, created by the artificial goal of the petaflop milestone. But it’s notable that even in the contrived race […]
In this video from Moabcon 2013, Bill Magro from Intel presents: Productive Parallel Programming for Intel Xeon Phi Coprocessors. View the Slides on Slideshare or check out the Moabcon 2013 Video Gallery.
In a recent trip to Russia, renowned HPC expert Jack Dongarra visited two of Europe’s top Intel Xeon Phi supercomputer sites deployed by RSC Group, the Russian leading innovative HPC solutions builder. As the first Xeon Phi supercomputers outside of the USA being already ranked by Top500 and Green500, the systems are deployed at South […]
In this video from Moabcon 2013, Troy Baer presents: NICS, Adaptive Computing, and Intel: Leadership in HPC. An Appro Xtreme-X Supercomputer named Beacon, deployed by the National Institute for Computational Sciences (NICS) of the University of Tennessee, tops the current Green500 list, which ranks the world’s fastest supercomputers based on their power efficiency. To earn […]
