I've known this day was coming - but when I saw Knights Corner clearly sustaining a TeraFlop (DGEMM, wide range of block sizes) per second - I was surprised by my emotional reaction inside.
Experimental Cloud-based Ray Tracing Using Intel® MIC Architecture for Highly Parallel Visual ProcessingThe cloud is game-changing factor in computing. Companies are offering a service in which the game itself runs on servers in the cloud. It processes user interactions from the game client, & the server sends back a compressed, rendered image to the user.
How does a high performance SMP on-a-chip sound to you?

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...
