Knights Corner: Your Path to Knights Landing

  • Overview

Join parallelism expert and evangelist James Reinders and find out how to best prepare your application for Knights Landing. The highly scalable, next-generation Intel® Xeon Phi™ processor/coprocessor will appear in late 2015, but you can get ready now for its advanced parallel processing capabilities. While it is true that programs making good use of Knights Corner will have a great path to Knights Landing, there are other options. We'll cover the paths to Knights Landing, and how to select the best path for your application. It's all about scaling and vectorization—techniques that can benefit your code today, and in the future.

Benchmark results were obtained prior to the implementation of recent software patches and firmware updates intended to address exploits referred to as "Spectre" and "Meltdown". Implementation of these updates may make these results inapplicable to your device or system.

Software and workloads used in performance tests may have been optimized for performance only on Intel microprocessors. Performance tests, such as SYSmark and MobileMark, are measured using specific computer systems, components, software, operations and functions. Any change to any of those factors may cause the results to vary. You should consult other information and performance tests to assist you in fully evaluating your contemplated purchases, including the performance of that product when combined with other products. For more information, see Performance Benchmark Test Disclosure.
