Part 8: Heterogeneous Programming with Coprocessors using MPI

Overview

In this episode, we will be talking about using multiple coprocessors in a cluster environment. Consider a cluster, which has multiple machines, called compute nodes, with one or several coprocessors per node, connected into a common network. As we know from earlier episodes, we can use a parallel framework called MPI to scale an application across these compute nodes.

Product and Performance Information

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.
