ARCHER Virtual Tutorial (3pm, 14 Sep): Intel Knights Landing Processor
15:00 BST Wednesday 14th September 2016
It was recently announced that a 12-node Cray system containing Intel's new Knights Landing (KNL) manycore processors is to be added to the existing ARCHER service.
This webinar will focus on the architecture of the KNL processor, including details of its new high-bandwidth memory and a discussion of how best to use all of the 250-plus possible threads of execution in real applications. As ever, the main aim is to promote discussion between attendees and members of the ARCHER CSE team.
The webinar should be of interest to anyone considering porting applications to Knights Landing.
This is the first of three webinars - subsequent events will focus on applying to the eCSE programme for KNL-related projects, and on how to use the ARCHER KNL system in practice.
