Knights Corner: Your Path to Knights Landing

Overview

Join parallelism expert and evangelist James Reinders and find out how to best prepare your application for Knights Landing. The highly scalable, next-generation Intel® Xeon Phi™ processor/coprocessor will appear in late 2015, but you can get ready now for its advanced parallel processing capabilities. While it is true that programs making good use of Knights Corner will have a great path to Knights Landing, there are other options. We'll cover the paths to Knights Landing, and how to select the best path for your application. It's all about scaling and vectorization—techniques that can benefit your code today, and in the future.

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.
