The Intel’s next generation Xeon Phi™ processor family x200 product (code-name Knights Landing) brings in several new technological solutions: socket form-factor (stand-alone CPU), as well as coprocessor version; a high bandwidth on package memory called Multi-Channel DRAM (MCDRAM) in addition to the traditional DDR4, which leads to three modes of MCDRAM operation - cache, flat, and hybrid; optional integrated high-speed fabric; and sub-NUMA clustering capabilities.
Colfax International is now offers a 1-hour webinar “Introduction to Next-Generation Intel® Xeon Phi™ Processor: Developer’s Guide to Knights Landing”, which will cover the following topics:
Introduction to Intel Architectures: -Where does Intel® Xeon Phi™ processors fit in? -Overview of features Vectorization: -Intel® Advanced Vector Extensions 512 (Intel® AVX-512) -Dual VPU Cores and Threading: -Differences from 1st generation Intel® Xeon Phi™ coprocessors -Utilizing the many cores Memory Architecture -MCDRAM usage models -Cluster modes
For viewers' convenience webinar will run in three different time slots twice per week on Tuesdays and Thursdays. Please, click provided link below to register: http://colfaxresearch.com/knl-webinar/
