Intel Releases oneAPI 2022 Toolkits

Jan. 4, 2022 — Intel today released oneAPI 2022 toolkits, which the company said have expanded cross-architecture features to provide greater utility and architectural choice to accelerate computing. oneAPI is a cross-industry, open, standards-based unified programming model designed to improve the productivity of code development when building cross-architecture applications. New capabilities in the 2022 toolkits […]

Intel Technology Partners Are World Changers

[SPONSORED POST] Intel’s Partner Ecosystem with ISVs, OEMs, standards organizations, channel resellers and others are delivering amazing capabilities and products using Intel technology. Recently updated for Supercomputing ’21, the Intel HPC + AI Pavilion showcases the breadth of technology innovations that our partners have created.

‘Nice Win’ for Ponte Vecchio – SiPearl Picks Intel GPU for European Exascale

SiPearl, designing the microprocessor for European supercomputers, today announced it will incorporate Intel’s forthcoming “Ponte Vecchio” GPU, along with Intel’s oneAPI cross-architecture programming model, in a partnership for the first European exascale supercomputers. SiPearl said the Intel partnership allows European customers “the possibility” to combine SiPearl’s HPC CPU, called Rhea, with Intel’s family of general-purpose […]

TACC Adopts Intel oneAPI for Remote Visual Analysis

The Texas Advanced Computing Center (TACC) at The University of Texas at Austin reports it is using the Intel oneAPI Rendering Toolkit for remote analysis capabilities on the center’s supercomputers, “providing high-fidelity visualization tools for all scales of computing.” TACC, which operates the Frontera and Stampede2 supercomputer along with more than a dozen HPC systems, […]

oneAPI DPC++ in SYCL 2020 Final Spec

oneAPI Data Parallel C++ (DPC++) features are included in the SYCL 2020 final specification, released today by The Khronos Group, an open consortium of industry-leading companies creating advanced interoperability standards. Since its launch in 2019, DPC++ has progressed significantly, building cross-architecture and cross-vendor support from the oneAPI Centers of Excellence and now successfully upstreaming features to […]

At SC20: Intel Provides Aurora Update as Argonne Developers Use Intel Xe-HP GPUs in Lieu of ‘Ponte Vecchio’

In an update to yesterday’s “Bridge to ‘Ponte Vecchio'” story, today we interviewed, Jeff McVeigh, Intel VP/GM of data center XPU products and solutions, who updated us on developments at Intel with direct bearing on Aurora, including the projected delivery of Ponte Vecchio (unchanged); on Aurora’s deployment (sooner than forecast yesterday by industry analyst firm Hyperion Research); on Intel’s “XPU” cross-architecture strategy and its impact on Aurora application development work ongoing at Argonne; and on the upcoming release of the first production version of oneAPI (next month), Intel’s cross-architecture programming model for CPUs, GPUs, FPGAs and other accelerators.

oneAPI Academic Center of Excellence Opened at Heidelberg University Computing Center for Hardware Heterogeneity

A oneAPI Academic Center of Excellence (CoE) is now established at the Heidelberg University Computing Center (URZ). The CoE will conduct research supporting the oneAPI industry initiative to create a uniform, open programming model for heterogeneous computer architectures. URZ will focus its research and programming efforts on a fundamental high-performance computing (HPC) challenge where modern […]

Brightskies Deploys Open Source RTM Application for Easy Optimization across Multiple Architectures

In this sponsored post on behalf of Intel, we see that in today’s high-performance computing applications, many different pieces of hardware can perform data-centric functions. With diverse accelerators entering the market, programming for multiple architectures has created significant development barriers for software developers.

New, Open DPC++ Extensions Complement SYCL and C++

In this guest article, our friends at Intel discuss how accelerated computing has diversified over the past several years given advances in CPU, GPU, FPGA, and AI technologies. This innovation drives the need for an open and cross-platform language that allows developers to realize the potential of new hardware, minimizes development cost and complexity, and maximizes reuse of their software investments.

SeRC Turns to oneAPI Multi-Chip Programming Model for Accelerated Research

At ISC 2020 Digital, the Swedish e-Science Research Center (SeRC), Stockholm, has announced plans to use Intel’s oneAPI unified programming language by researchers conducting  massive simulations powered by CPUs and GPUs. The center said it chose the oneAPI programming model, designed to span CPUs, GPUs, FPGAs and other architectures and silicon,  to accelerate compute for research using GROMACS (GROningen MAchine for Chemical Simulations) molecular dynamics software, developed by SeRC and first released in 1991
