The current OpenMP* 4.0 RC1 specification and associated TR1 technical report (both available from http://openmp.org) adds new features for controlling vectorization and execution on coprocessors.
The Intel® Parallel Studio XE 2015 Composer Editions for Windows* and Linux* have feature enhancements that provide near full support of the OpenMP* 4.0 API (July 2013) specification.
Programming for Multicore and Many-core Products including Intel® Xeon® processors and Intel® Xeon Phi™ X100 Product Family coprocessorsThe 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...
The list below summarizes new features and changes specific to programming for Intel® MIC Architecture with Intel Compiler 15.0:
FAT Binary Created for Windows* Static (.lib) and Dynamic-Link (.dll) Library Containing Intel® Xeon Phi™ Coprocessor Offload Code
The Intel® Parallel Studio XE 2015 Composer Editions for Windows* have an internal implementation feature enhancement enabling the Intel® 15.0 compilers to create a FAT binary file for the Windows*
Run-to-Run Reproducibility of Floating-Point Calculations for Applications on Intel® Xeon Phi™ Coprocessors (and Intel® Xeon® Processors)The Issue
If I rerun the identical program on the identical input data on an identical processor, will I get an identical result?
The Intel® Parallel Studio XE 2015 Composer Editions for Windows* and Linux* have an internal implementation feature enhancement to the Intel® Xeon Phi™ coprocessor binary image created when using
