Intel 7220A Xeon Phi PCIe 68 Core Coprocessor Card/Board Active
What Applications Can Benefit from the Intel® Xeon Phi™ Coprocessor
While most applications will continue to achieve maximum performance on Intel® Xeon® processors, certain highly parallel applications will benefit dramatically by using Intel® Xeon® Phi™ coprocessors. To take full advantage of Intel® Xeon Phi™ coprocessors an application must scale well to over 100 software threads and either make extensive use of vectors or efficiently use more local memory bandwidth than is available on an Intel® Xeon® processor. Examples of segments with highly parallel applications include animation, energy, finance, life sciences, manufacturing, medical, public sector, weather, and more.
Think "Reuse" Rather Than "Recode"
Since languages, tools, and applications are compatible for both Intel® Xeon® processors and Intel® Xeon Phi™ coprocessors, now you can think “reuse” rather than “recode.” Single programming model for all your code. The Intel® Xeon Phi™ coprocessor gives developers a hardware design point optimized for extreme parallelism, without requiring them to re-architect or rewrite their code. No need to rethink the entire problem or learn a new programming model; simply recompile and optimize existing code using familiar tools, libraries, and runtimes. By maintaining a single source code between Intel® Xeon® processors and Intel® Xeon Phi™ coprocessors, developers optimize once for parallelism, but maximize performance on both processor and coprocessor. Unlike a graphics processing unit (GPU), a coprocessor can be fully IP addressable, run offloaded code, and support standards such as Message Passing Interface (MPI).
When Do I Use Intel® Xeon® Processors and Intel® Xeon Phi™ Coprocessors?
Pick the right tool for the right job. With Intel® Xeon® processors, you have the power needed for high-performance computing (HPC) workloads with parallel and serial components. The Intel® Xeon Phi™ coprocessors are optimized to be the right choice for highly parallel workloads with programmability benefits like single source, converging ISA, and a common environment.
*Platforms using Intel® Xeon® processor E5-2600 v3 and E5-2600 v4 product families are not supported at this time. Features • Coproccesor comprises of a PCIe 3.0 compliant high performance add-in card with processor & memory in addition to integrated thermal & mechanical solution.
• Processor with up to 68 Intel architecture cores and 16GB of high-bandwidth, on-package MCDRAM memory.
• Intel C610 Series Platform Controller Hub (PCH) with x4 DMI and PECI.
