Intel Xeon Phi Coprocessor

Prominent features of the Intel® Manycore Platform Software Stack (Intel® MPSS) version 3.5

The Intel® Manycore Platform Software Stack (Intel® MPSS) version 3.5 was released on April 6th, 2015. This page lists the prominent features in this release.

Intel® MPSS 3.5

  • Added support for Lustre client.

Coprocessor Offload Infrastructure (COI)

  • New APIs to better support programming models

Second Preview of Heterogeneous Streams

  • MPSS
  • MIC
  • Intel Xeon Phi Coprocessor
  • Intel® Many Integrated Core Architecture
  • Videos - Parallel Programming with Intel Xeon Phi Coprocessors

    Here is a list of recently published videos from Colfax International on Intel(R) Xeon Phi(TM) Coprocessors.

    In this video we will discuss software tools needed and recommended for developing applications for Intel Xeon Phi coprocessors. We will begin with software that is necessary to boot coprocessors and to run pre-compiled executables on them.

    Videos - Parallel Programming and Optimization with Intel Xeon Phi Coprocessors

    Here is a set of introductory videos from Colfax International on Parallel Programming and Optimization with Intel(R) Xeon Phi(TM) Coprocessors.

    In this video episode we will introduce Intel Xeon Phi coprocessors based on the Intel Many Integrated Core, or MIC, architecture and will cover some of the specifics of hardware implementation.

    Advanced Computer Concepts for The (Not So) Common Chef: First Some Terminology Part 2

    OF COURSE, I KNOW WHAT A THREAD IS….DON’T I?

    Now that we know what a core is, let’s dive into another source of confusion.

    This section gets a little deeper into techno babble than I wanted for this series of blogs. If you are so inclined, my gourmet readers, you can either skip or read on. I believe the rest of the blogs can be understood with or without this little aside. But for those of you who are already familiar with threading, it may give you more insight than would be the case otherwise.

    Advanced Computer Concepts For The (Not So) Common Chef: Terminology Pt 1

    Before we start, I will use the next two blogs to clear up some terminology. If you are familiar with these concepts, I give you permission to jump to the next section.  I suggest any software readers still check out the other blog about threads. There is a lot of confusion, even among us software professionals.
