Intel® Xeon Phi™ Coprocessor Developer's Quick Start Guide

Download Entire Articles



This document will help you get started writing code and running applications on a system (host) that includes the Intel® Xeon Phi™ Coprocessor based on the Intel® Many Integrated Core Architecture (Intel® MIC Architecture). It describes the available tools and includes simple examples to show how to get C/C++ and Fortran-based programs up and running. For now, the developer will have to cut/paste the examples provided in the document to their system.

This document is available at under the "Overview"tab.


This document does:

  1. Walk you through the Intel® Manycore Platform Software Stack (Intel® MPSS) installation.
  2. Introduce the build environment for software enabled to run on Intel® Xeon Phi™ Coprocessor .
  3. Give an example of how to write code for Intel® Xeon Phi™ Coprocessor and build using Intel® Composer XE 2015.
  4. Demonstrate the use of Intel libraries like the Intel® Math Kernel Library (Intel® MKL).
  5. Point you to information on how to debug and profile programs running on an Intel® Xeon Phi™ Coprocessor .
  6. Share some best known methods (BKMs) developed by users at Intel.

This document does not:

  1. Cover each tool in detail. Please refer to the user guides for the individual tools.
  2. Provide in-depth training.
