Get the Most out of Your Free Trial of Intel Xeon Phi Processors

April 7, 2017

Free Webinar Abstract Intel® Xeon Phi™ processors x200 (formerly Knights Landing) are computational beasts. Their theoretical peak performance is up to 3 TFLOP/s and measured memory bandwidth is up to 490 GB/s. This performance is available without any difference in programming models compared to general-purpose x86-like CPUs. Colfax is offering a free trial program for this technology. This program is available through Intel’s sponsorship. The Colfax Cluster has 64 compute nodes based on Intel Xeon Phi 7250 processors. Intel® Omni-Path fabric interconnects the nodes. This cluster is at your service for two weeks for testing and evaluation. In this 1-hour webinar I will describe how you can get the most out of your two weeks on the cluster: What workloads you can run to see the performance How to prepare your own code to run on the cluster Where to learn the best optimization practices for this and similar architectures Slides:  Colfax-Remote-Access-Webinar-2017.pdf (2 MB) — this file is available only to registered users.
