Xeon Phi

A family of x86 coprocessors from Intel for parallel computing. Dubbed the "Many Integrated Core" (MIC) architecture, Xeon Phi chips run at lower speeds than ordinary Intel CPUs but make up for the speed with multiple cores. Xeon Phi chips can be used stand-alone or in conjunction with Intel's full-blown Xeon processors. The 50-core Knights Corner was the first implementation of the Xeon Phi line, followed by Knights Landing. See Xeon and high-performance computing.

The first question to be answered then is whether transmission occurs readily during PHI and, perhaps, whether it occurs more readily than at other stages of infection as has been proposed by some models.
Founded in 1897, Phi Kappa Phi is the nation's oldest and most selective all-discipline honor society.
Treating patients during PHI may reduce the severity of the acute retroviral syndrome.
Based on the Intel[R] Many Integrated Core (Intel[R] MIC) architecture, Intel Xeon Phi coprocessors will complement the existing Intel[R] Xeon[R] processor E5-2600/4600 product families to deliver unprecedented performance for highly parallel applications.
Be sure you know where PHI is being collected, used, shared, and transferred and how and when PHI is securely destroyed.
In those cases in which PHI is sent over any form of open network, it needs to be encrypted, and a mechanism established to ensure that the intended recipient received it.
A more recent paper by this same group of researchers and colleagues in San Francisco and Seattle (3) found that although patients treated during PHI had less diverse viral populations, they also had weaker and narrower cytotoxic T lymphocyte (CTL) responses than patients treated with antiretroviral therapy soon after seroconversion.
