Leveraging Parallelism on Intel Xeon Phi Coprocessors and Multicore Processors


With 69 contributors from academia and industry, a new book shows how to leverage parallelism on processors and coprocessors with the same programming, providing detailed illustrations of effective ways to combine Intel Xeon Phi coprocessors with multicore processors.

Video: Computer Architecture and Structured Parallel Programming


In this video from the 2014 Argonne Training Program on Extreme-Scale Computing, James Reinders presents: Computer Architecture and Structured Parallel Programming. “At ATPESC 2014, we captured 67 hours of lectures in 86 videos of presentations by pioneers and elites in the HPC community on topics ranging from programming techniques and numerical algorithms best suited for leading-edge HPC systems to trends in HPC architectures and software most likely to provide performance portability through the next decade and beyond.”
