In this video from SC12, David R. Mackay from Intel demonstrates the Intel Advisor XE 2013, a design tool that helps you to transform serial code to run well on multicore hardware (such as the Intel Xeon Phi) by forecasting what might happen if the code executes in parallel. As a powerful programming tool. Advisor helps identify where parallelisation gives the biggest returns, predicts scalability and overheads, and predicts data races. As with many of the Intel parallel programming tools, it uses highly visual graphs to help you identify hotspots and assess the potential performance of your parallel annotations.
