Not all applications are created equal. Some are chomping at the bit to harvest as much parallelism as a target platform can provide. Those may be good candidates for running on an Intel® Xeon Phi™ Coprocessor. Other applications are scalar (not vectorized) and sequential (not threaded). They won't even make full use of an Intel Xeon processor, much less an Intel Xeon Phi Coprocessor. Before moving to a highly-parallel platform, the developer-tuner needs to expose enough parallelism to hit the limits of the Intel Xeon platform. Once the demand for threads an
No dia 4/6/2013 o Community Manager da Intel, Luciano Palma, apresentou uma Palestra sobre Computação Paralela no SECOMP 2013, realizado na UNIFEI - Itajubá/MG.

This is the second 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 various frameworks for unleashing the power of multiple threads on the Xeon Phi. We will also have a look at interesting properties and advantages / disadvantages of each framework.
The Intel® MPI Library offers many configuration options for improving application performance on your cluster. The number of options can be daunting to a new user. To assist with this, the Automatic Tuning utility is provided. This allows you to tune runtime parameters to match your system and your applications. In this webinar, I will introduce the tuner and provide use cases to begin using it for your cluster and applications.
