Vectorization Advisor is like having a trusted friend look over your code and give you advice based on what he sees. As you’ll see in this article, user feedback on the tool has included, “there are significant speedups produced by following advisor output, I'm already sold on this tool!”
Intel held the Intel® Modern Code Developer Challenge that had about 2,000 students from 130 universities in 19 countries registered to participate in the Challenge. They were provided access to Intel® Xeon Phi™ coprocessors to optimize code used in a CERN openlab brain simulation research project. In this article Daniel Vea Falguera (Modern Code Developer Challenge winner) shares how he...
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.
