Intel Software Development Products Technical Presentations are live one hour webcasts on technical topics presented by Technical Consulting Engineers.
Webinar slides - New innovations bring new challenges. For many C/C++ developers, introducing parallelism means spending hours tuning an application for multicore performance. Learn techniques with a new performance tuning profiler found in Intel® Parallel Studio and quickly identify performance issues. Using application source code, Intel parallelism expert Gary Carleton demonstrates how developers can quickly solve the three most common performance issues: (1) bottlenecks, (2) locks and waits, and (3) amount and locations of threads. Windows* developers now have a tool that brings new levels of transparency for quickly and accurately tuning threaded applications for optimal performance. Recommended companion technical webinar: The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly: Improve Parallel Application Quality and Performance.
Webinar slides - Whether an application is serial, partially parallel, or fully parallel it can get significant benefit from parallelism. New Intel® Parallel Studio tools provide Windows* developers with the keys to get the most out of parallelism. Gain an in-depth understanding of when, where, and how much to use parallelism to achieve optimal results. Microsoft* Visual Studio C/C++ developers will learn how to identify and safely design applications that can scale with increasing processor core counts. Recommended companion technical webinar: Identify and Address Threading Opportunities.
In this article Max Domeika surveys various multi-core threading techniques such as OpenMP, and discusses some of the challenges when applying threading such as data races and cache conflicts.
