The Intel Xeon Phi
processor is a bootable host processor that delivers massive parallelism and vectorization to support the most demanding high-performance computing (HPC) applications.
Catanzaro, who helped launch Nvidia's deep-learning assault before going to Baidu, is testing the Xeon Phi
coprocessor and says it can handle some deep-learning tasks around 90 percent as effectively as graphics processors.
The new Intel Xeon Phi
platform is a 14nm many-core x86 CPU architecture.
As part of this upgrade, DWD will also receive additional Cray Sonexion 2000 scale-out Lustre storage capacity, and a future 12-node Cray CS400 system with the next-generation of the Intel Xeon Phi
Tianhe-2 currently has 16,000 nodes, each with two Intel Xeon Ivy Bridge processors, and three Xeon Phi
coprocessors for a combined total of 3.
Not that optimizing hardware utilization was a simple task back then, but current HPC users and systems administrators must now manage workflows that may include a mix-n-match collection of heterogeneous hardware like CPUs, GPUs and Intel Xeon Phi
devices installed in multiple, distributed clusters that may be located within an organization, physically located across multiple data centers around the world, and may even include resources nebulously contained within the cloud.
According to Cray, the COMA system, which utilises Intel Xeon processors and Intel Xeon Phi
coprocessors, will provide the CCS user community with a powerful tool for performing research in the areas of space physics, theory of elementary particles, life sciences and material sciences.
7 GHz Intel Xeon E5-2697 v2 processor and the Intel Xeon Phi
Designed and operated by Bull, the Helios supercomputer installed in Rokkasho, Japan, is boosted by an additional 380 Intel Xeon Phi
coprocessors to increase its power to almost 2 Petaflops.
7GHz, Intel Xeon E5-2697v2 , Intel Xeon Phi
7120p (2416 Gflops per node)
For example, Intel recently announced that the next generation of Intel Xeon Phi
processor will deliver integrated on-package memory allowing leadership compute and memory bandwidth, and we're researching new technologies including memory stacked on memory.
Matching home-grown Feiteng-1500 CPUs as well as Intel Xeon and Xeon Phi
processors, Tianhe-2 was almost twice as fast as the second computer, Titan, which is capable of running at 17.
