Jim Jeffers on High Performance Programming for the Intel Xeon Phi Coprocessor

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

In this video from ISC’13, Jim Jeffers from Intel discusses the new Intel Xeon Phi product family and how programmers can take advantage of parallelism to optimize applications performance.

Jeffers is the co-author of the book, Intel Xeon Phi Coprocessor High Performance Programming.

Authors Jim Jeffers and James Reinders spent two years helping educate customers about the prototype and pre-production hardware before Intel introduced the first Intel Xeon Phi coprocessor. They have distilled their own experiences coupled with insights from many expert customers, Intel Field Engineers, Application Engineers and Technical Consulting Engineers, to create this authoritative first book on the essentials of programming for this new architecture and these new products. This book is useful even before you ever touch a system with an Intel Xeon Phi coprocessor. To ensure that your applications run at maximum efficiency, the authors emphasize key techniques for programming any modern parallel computing system whether based on Intel Xeon processors, Intel Xeon Phi coprocessors, or other high performance microprocessors. Applying these techniques will generally increase your program performance on any system, and better prepare you for Intel Xeon Phi coprocessors and the Intel MIC architecture.
