Intel recently unveiled the new Intel® Xeon Phi™ product – a coprocessor based on the Intel® Many Integrated Core architecture. Intel® Math Kernel Library (Intel® MKL) 11.0 introduces high-performance and comprehensive math functionality support for the Intel® Xeon Phi™ coprocessor. You can download the audio recording of the webinar and the presentation slides from the links below.
Using the Intel® MPI Library along with the offload capabilities of the Intel® Xeon Phi™ coprocessor allows a user to access the capabilities of the coprocessor without the need for direct filesystem access on the coprocessor. This can lead to administrative benefits by not requiring additional security on the coprocessor's filesystem.
Offloading of MPI functions
Calling MPI functions within an offload region is not supported.
This page documents specific tips and the best known methods of using the Intel® Math Kernel Library on the Intel® Xeon Phi™ coprocessor. For general performance improvement recommendations of using Intel® Math Kernel Library, please see the related topics in the Intel® Math Kernel Library for Linux* OS User's Guide.
Starting with Intel® MKL 11.0, support for the Intel® Xeon Phi™ coprocessor has been available. Intel® MKL provides specifically optimized functions for users to take advantages of this new architecture. This page is a collection of online resources on using Intel® MKL on the Intel® Xeon Phi™ coprocessors.
