Benchmarking MPI Communication on Phi-Based Clusters

Mar 12, 2014 |

Intel’s Many Integrated Core (MIC) architecture was designed to accommodate highly-parallel applications, a great many of which rely on the Message Passing Interface (MPI) standard. Applications deployed on Intel Xeon Phi coprocessors may use offload programming, an approach similar to the CUDA framework for general purpose GPU (GPGPU) computing, in which the CPU-based application is Read more…

Speaking Many Languages into the MIC
