Intel Parallel Studio 2018: Modernize Your Code

“Intel Parallel Studio 2018 has been designed to recognize the latest CPU architectures including the Intel Xeon Scalable processor family and the Intel Xeon Phi processors in order to get maximum performance from their differing architectures, yet remain binary compatible. With the recent introduction of the Intel  AVX-512 vectorization instructions, application developers can more easily take advantage of these new instructions when developing and compiling with the Intel Parallel Studio 2018.”

Intel Parallel Studio XE AVX-512: Tuning for Success with the Latest SIMD Extensions and Intel® Advanced Vector Extensions 512

With the introduction of Intel Parallel Studio XE, instructions for utilizing the vector extensions have been enhanced and new instructions have been added. Applications in diverse domains such as data compression and decompression, scientific simulations and cryptography can take advantage of these new and enhanced instructions. “Although microkernels can demonstrate the effectiveness of the new SIMD instructions, understanding why the new instructions benefit the code can then lead to even greater performance.”

Intel Compilers 18.0 Tune for AVX-512 ISA Extensions

Intel Compilers 18.0 and Intel Parallel Studio XE 2018 tuning software fully support the AVX-512 instructions. By widening and deepening the vector registers, the new instructions and added enhancements let the compiler squeeze more vector parallelism out of applications than before. Applications compiled with the –xCORE-AVX512 will generate an executable that utilizes these new high-performance instructions.

Intel Xeon Scalable Platform Enables Major Advancements for HPC

Described by Intel as the biggest platform advancement in a decade, the new Intel Xeon Scalable Platform accelerates high-performance computing workloads and provides new capabilities to advance emerging fields like artificial intelligence and self-driving vehicles.
