This is the first article in a series of articles about High Performance Computing with the Intel Xeon Phi. The Intel Xeon Phi is the first commercial product of Intel to incorporate the Many Integrated Core architecture. In this article I will present the basics of the Xeon Phi architecture, the programming models and what we can do to measure the performance in cycles for micro benchmarks.
Answers for the questions raised during the April session of our Introduction to High Performance Application Development for Intel® Xeon® & Intel® Xeon Phi™ processors class have been assembled. There were some duplicates and other questions we couldn't decipher, either because of the wording or because of implied context that was not spelled out. We tried to address the rest, which appear below:
Intel(R) Composer XE 2013 Beta registration for Intel(R) Xeon Phi(tm) Coprocessor
Please read this letter, as it is explains in detail what you can expect as a result of using this Beta product. The instructions below will also direct you to a survey that will result in you obtaining a license for these products, which give you access to download the bits, and get support.

This is a set of labs we taught during past workshops, intended to cover more advanced concepts. These are written so that you should be able to guide yourself. The labs are available are both in C/C++ and Fortran.
Before you attempt to run these labs, make sure your environment is properly set up.
