Russia's Novosibirsk State University boosted a simulation tool’s performance by 3X with Intel® Parallel Studio, Intel® Advisor, and Intel® Trace Analyzer and Collector, cutting the standard time for calculating one problem from one week to just two days.
When researchers at the University were looking to develop and optimize a software tool for numerical simulation of magnetohydrodynamics (MHD) problems with hydrogen ionization—part of an astrophysical objects simulation (AstroPhi) project—they needed to optimize the tool’s performance on Intel® Xeon Phi™ processor-based hardware. The team turned to Intel® Advisor and Intel® Trace Analyzer and Collector. This resulted in a performance speed-up of 3X.
"The use of Intel® Advanced Vector Extensions for Intel® Xeon Phi™ processors gave us the maximum code performance compared with other architectures available on the market,” explained Igor Kulikov,
