Intel Parallel Computing Center collaboration with Colfax

We're just kicking off a week's collaboration with Colfax, a US technology company that collaborates heavily with Intel on Xeon Phi optimisation and training for the Xeon Phi. 

Intel Parallel Computing Centre: progress report

EPCC's Grand Challenges Optimisation Centre, an Intel Parallel Computing Centre which we announced earlier in the year, has made significant progress over recent months. 

The collaboration was created to optimise codes for Intel processors, particularly to port and optimise scientific simulation codes for Intel Xeon Phi co-processors. As EPCC also runs the ARCHER supercomputer, which contains a large number of Intel Xeon processors (although no accelerators or co-processors), for EPSRC and other UK research funding councils, we also have a strong focus on ensuring that scientific simulation codes are highly optimised for these processors. Therefore, the IPCC work at EPCC has been concentrating on improving the performance of a range of codes that are heavily used for computational simulation in the UK on both Intel Xeon and Intel Xeon Phi processors.
