“Building on the success of the Intel Parallel Computing Centers, Intel is announcing the Intel Modern Code Developer Community to help HPC developers to code for maximum performance on current and future hardware. Targeting over 400,000 HPC-focused developers and partners, the program brings tools, training, knowledge and support to developers worldwide by offering access to a network of elite experts in parallelism and HPC. The broader developer community can now gain the skills needed to unlock the full potential of Intel hardware and enable the next decade of discovery.”
“TotalView breaks down barriers to understanding what’s going on with your HPC and supercomputing applications. Purpose-built for multicore and parallel computing, TotalView provides a set of tools providing unprecedented control over processes and thread execution, along with deep visibility into program states and data.”
In this video from ISC 2015, Mark O’Connor demonstrates how the Allinea Performance Reports tool enables coders to speed up hydro, a real-world CFD code. “Allinea Performance Reports are the most effective way to characterize and understand the performance of HPC application runs. One single-page HTML report elegantly answers a range of vital questions for any HPC site.”
The EKOPath compiler for High Performance Computing supports advanced loop optimizations, SIMD vectorization and many-core support. This release of EKOPath includes optimizations specifically for the ThunderX microarchitecture as well as tuning tailored to typical HPC workloads, including computationally complex and data intensive applications as well as OpenMP.
“The AMD FirePro S9170 server GPU can accelerate complex workloads in scientific computing, data analytics, or seismic processing, wielding an industry-leading 32GB of memory. We designed the new offering for supercomputers to achieve massive compute performance while maximizing available power budgets.”
