Programming for Multicore and Many-core Products including Intel® Xeon® processors and Intel® Xeon Phi™ X100 Product Family coprocessors

The programming models in use today, used for multicore processors every day, are available for many-core coprocessors as well. Therefore, explaining how to program both Intel Xeon processors and Intel Xeon Phi coprocessor is best done by explaining the options for parallel programming. This paper provides the foundation for understanding how multicore processors and many-core coprocessors are...

Putting Your Data and Code in Order: Data and layout - Part 2

Apply the concepts of parallelism and distributed memory computing to your code to improve software performance. This paper expands on concepts discussed in Part 1, to consider parallelism, both vectorization (single instruction multiple data SIMD) as well as shared memory parallelism (threading), and distributed memory computing.

Introduction to the Heterogeneous Streams Library

To efficiently utilize all available resources for the task concurrency application on heterogeneous platforms, designers need to understand the memory architecture, the thread utilization on each platform, the pipeline to offload the workload to different platforms. To relieve designers of the burden of implementing the necessary infrastructures, the Heterogeneous Streaming (hStreams) library...
