In November 2014, I led a session at SC14 (the event formerly known as “Supercomputing”) titled “The Future of Fortran”. I invited representatives from other vendors and members of the Fortran standards committee to participate, and had some accept, but when it came time for the session, I was up there alone. Oh well…

In this article, we are enabling and using Intel(R) Integrated Performance Primitives(IPP), Intel(R) Threading Building Blocks(TBB) and Intel(R) C++ Compiler(ICC) on Linux ( Ubuntu 14.04 LTS 64bit ). We will build and run one of the examples that comes with IPP and apply TBB and ICC on the example to observe the performance improvement of using Intel(R) System Studio features.
New Intel processors introduce enhanced instruction set extensions to improve performance or strengthen security of an application. Instruction set extensions like Intel AVX1 and AVX21 are used to improve performance and Intel SHA2 instructions are used for SHA acceleration to increase security of an application.
Intel(R) C++ Compiler 15.0 provides a feature which enables offloading general purpose compute kernels to processor graphics. This feature enables the processor graphics silicon area for general purpose computing. The key idea is to utilize the compute power of both CPU cores and GPU execution units in tandem for better utilization of available compute power.
Target OS requirements:
Intel(R) System Studio Developer Story : With XDB and MinnowBoard MAX , how to debug exception errors in the Android-Linux-Kernel.
We are excited to announce the next release of the Intel® OpenMP* Runtime Library at openmprtl.org. This release aligns with Intel® Parallel Studio XE 2015 Composer Edition Update 3.
- OpenMP* 4.1: Support for a new kind of task needed for asynchronous offload
- Improved Intel® Trace Analyzer and Collector and Intel® VTune™ Performance Tools support
Lançamos há alguns dias a versão 1.0 do Intel® IoT Developer Kit. Esta versão incorpora a correção de diversos bugs da versão anterior, além de trazer diversas melhorias muito interessantes, das quais destacamos:
One of the promises of HTML5 is to enable cross-platform apps; meaning that you can write one app that runs on multiple platforms (using a single source code base). This is the ideal for HTML5 apps; the reality is that HTML5 web apps are mostly cross-platform and sometimes require conditional code to deal with platform-specific quirks and differences.
