Monte Carlo

Monte Carlo Demo

This demo shows how to benefit from Intel® Xeon® multi-core architecture using Intel tools. It shows incremental gains for the application with the help of Intel compilers, the Intel® Math Kernel Library (Intel® MKL), and OpenMP*. This has been achieved by minimal changes to the original CPU code.

The demo requires the installation of .NET framework, which is included in the bundle.
