Porting applications to Intel® Xeon Phi™ Coprocessor
The following Best Known Methods are assembled here to help users port applications to the Intel® Xeon Phi™ coprocessor. When porting applications, use the following topics as guidelines and keep in mind that many tips assume the use of Intel® compilers.
As I continue to explore different Ultrabook capabilities, in this blog I decided to look into a powerful threading and performance optimization tool for C/C++, .NET, and FORTRAN developers who need to understand an application's serial and parallel behavior to improve performance and scalability: Intel® VTune™ Amplifier XE 2011.
In all my years in college I have used a laptop PC. Recently, I’ve been tempted to get a MacBook Air Pro because of its light-weight and stylish look. But, since starting at Intel, I’ve been able to explore and play with an Ultrabook and it has changed my mind completely. The reason is simple: Ivy Bridge Ultrabooks are just amazing! Ultrabooks will be even more amazing when you add the touch screen capability of Window 8 later this year.
Dr. Michael Wrinn's, Manager Intel Innovative Software Education, keynote delivered at SIGCSE 2010, on the the move for the adoption of parallelism as an integral part of the computer and computational sciences curriculum.
The first column in this table shows the parallelism topics. The second column displays the Intel Game demo that a professor can use to demonstrate that particular parallelism topic. The third column are the page numbers to the book: "The Art of Concurrency" written by Clay Breshears.
You can download the Intel Game demos from the Intel website for your classroom use.
The primary objective of this chapter is to make students understand the concepts of parallel programming. The chapter is dealt with as an extension to C programming so that the student develops an insight into writing parallel programs. This chapter does not intend to teach any in- depth concepts of Operating System, Computer Architecture, threading etc, but only introduces the relevant concept wherever necessary.
