Tim Mattson (Intel) has authored an extensive series of excellent videos as in introduction to OpenMP*.
This article looks at several books that introduce developers to the topics of Message Passing Interface (MPI), parallel programming, and OpenMP*.
Learn how to write an MPI program in Python*, and take advantage of Intel® multicore architectures using OpenMP threads and Intel® AVX512 instructions.
Part one of this three-part series focuses on thread parallelism and race conditions, and discusses using mutexes in OpenMP* to resolve race conditions.
The Intel® MPI Library and OpenMP* runtime libraries can create affinities between processes or threads, and hardware resources. This affinity keeps an MPI process or OpenMP thread from migrating to a different hardware resource, which can have a dramatic effect on the execution speed of a program.
In this article an OpenMP* based implementation of the Ant Colony Optimization algorithm was analyzed for bottlenecks with Intel® VTune™ Amplifier XE 2016 together with improvements using hybrid MPI-OpenMP and Intel® Threading Building Blocks were introduced to achieve efficient scaling across a four-socket Intel® Xeon® processor E7-8890 v4 processor-based system.
Parallel Universe is Intel's quarterly magazine that explores inroads and innovations in software development. The new issue takes a deep dive into the subject of vectorization and what it can do for you. Our first feature article looks at the SIMD directives for explicit vector programming now available in OpenMP. The second article walks you through Vectorization Advisor, a new tool in the...
A look into the contents of the two "Pearls" books, edited by James Reinders and Jim Jeffers. These books contain a collection of examples of code modernization.
Intel is bringing to market, in anticipation of general availability of the Intel® Xeon Phi™ Processor (codenamed Knights Landing), the Developer Access Program (DAP). DAP is an early access program for developers worldwide to purchase an Intel Xeon Phi Processor based system.
