SC10 Student Programming Contest

I was just talking to the organizer of the SC10 student competition and they're still looking for teams to compete.
Some exciting new additions to this year's competition-- one of which is the inclusion of the Intel Manycore Testing Lab-- and the head of the Lab, Dr. Mike Pearce will be onsite in New Orlean's to work with the students!

Create arrays or vectors as I want in Ifort Linux

Hi all,

I'm new in Ifort and I have a little problem with a code, maybe it's a simple problem, who knows but I don't know resolve...

I have a vector with nn data. I need to separate the vector in mm smalls vectors depending of one condition (I know how do that!).
I want that if I change the value of mm the code makes the mm vectors automatically, the problem is I can't image how define the vectors without changing the code structure each time.... Thanks a lot for the help!

Designing a course on parallel medical imaging


a colleague of mine in Germany and I are currently designing a course on parallel processing in medical imaging / image reconstruction. We are just in the planning phase right now. So feedback on our thoughts would be highly appreciated.

As we plan to post the resulting course material here as well, we are wondering whether this forum is the right place to develop the course material.

We will probably lead the discussion on what to include and where to set the focus of the course right here in this thread. Or would anyone recommend a better solution?

Summer Courses, where to find them?

Hi there,I've got my BA in Computing Engineering (most software and a bit of hardware) last year and was looking on 1 to 4 week classes to improve my parallelism skills.During my graduation I had lots of low-level parallelism (caching, pipelining, reorder buffers and etc) but almost none on high level threading and alike).

Does Intel has any academic license for BIOS and/or motherboard?

Hi there,

I am a PhD student at a university in USA. I am working
on a research project and wonder if I can buy the source code and/or the
developing tools for the PC BIOS.

I also want to know how to get those documentations about CPU, or BIOS writer's guide from Intel. I know I need to sign a NDA for that, and that is OK for me.

Is it possible to create TCP/IP firewall without Intel network processor and development kits?

Hi everyone,

I have a FYP " Create a TCP/IP firewall using Intel Network Processor".

It is definitely impossible they will provide me the processor and development kits oso.

What they want is just I need to simulate out the result for them..
1. Compare the speed of firewall between software firewall and hardware firewall
2. Compare the performance between both

But I dun hav any idea how to do it?Is it possible to do that?
Hope Intel expert here may help me
Any help is very appreciated...

Server Sizing


We are planning to use this server for storing MySQL database for our game and website (which runs phpBB forums and several other modules). We won't be hosting Apache or php web content itself on this server for now. Though later on during peak load, we can consider using this server as our load balance client and it can host php content or at least static content.
