Optimizing Codes for Heterogeneous HPC Clusters Using OpenACC

July 3, 2017

Looking at the Top500 and Green500 ranks, one clearly realizes that most HPC systems are heterogeneous architecture using COTS (Commercial Off-The-Shelf) hardware, combining traditional multi-core CPUs with massively parallel accelerators, such as GPUs and MICs. With processor frequencies now hitting a solid wall, the only truly open avenue for riding today the Moore’s law is increasing hardware parallelism in several different ways: more computing nodes, more processors in each node, more cores within each processor, and longer vector instructions in each core.

Exiting Intel, James Reinders Offers a Brief Personal Retrospective

June 6, 2016

You may have heard that Intel has encouraged “long timers” (like me) to consider early retirement. Well, the offer was convincing for me. After 10,001 days at Intel, it is time for me to start the next phase of my life. I've accepted the “ERP offer” (early retirement) with my last day being June 24, 2016 (exactly 10,000 days after my start date). I’ll be in the office as much as needed to help transitions and wrap things up. Let me know if you need/want anything from me as I finish up. Read more…
