The Intel® Distribution for Python* mkl-mic package allows Automatic Offload (AO) of workloads to Intel® Xeon Phi™ Coprocessors.
AO is currently only available on Linux* platforms.
Follow these steps to enable AO:
conda install mkl-mic
conda install mkl-mic intelpython -c intel --no-update-deps
Execution of certain python workloads will now automatically be offloaded to Intel® Xeon Phi™ coprocessors. For more information on which operations are considered for AO, see this article.
Other optional settings:
Intel's compilers may or may not optimize to the same degree for non-Intel microprocessors for optimizations that are not unique to Intel microprocessors. These optimizations include SSE2, SSE3, and SSSE3 instruction sets and other optimizations. Intel does not guarantee the availability, functionality, or effectiveness of any optimization on microprocessors not manufactured by Intel. Microprocessor-dependent optimizations in this product are intended for use with Intel microprocessors. Certain optimizations not specific to Intel microarchitecture are reserved for Intel microprocessors. Please refer to the applicable product User and Reference Guides for more information regarding the specific instruction sets covered by this notice.
