Six Steps Towards Better Performance on Intel Xeon Phi

“As with all new technology, developers will have to create processes in order to modernize applications to take advantage of any new feature. Rather than randomly trying to improve the performance of an application, it is wise to be very familiar with the application and use available tools to understand bottlenecks and look for areas of improvement.”

Preparing Code For Parallel Execution

With the advent of the tremendous compute density of new processors, it is important to understand if an application can take advantage of multicore. “Developers should understand if an application might be ready to run in a highly vectorized or many core environment before attempting to do the work necessary to obtain the high performance that might be expected.”

Application Performance & Power Consumption on Intel Xeon Phi

“While new technology will be developed that reduces the power per operation needed, in today’s environments it is important to understand how an application affects power usage. For modern applications that have been optimized to take advantage of both the Intel Xeon CPU and the Intel Xeon Phi coprocessor, the hardware mentioned does include various power states, which can minimize the power consumption when idle.”
