Intel rolled out its new Knights Corner brand name Xeon Phi
Yesterday kicked off the event International Supercomputing Conference (ISC) 2012, an event that will end on Thursday 21, so I anticipate that these days we will have many news segments relating to workstations, servers and supercomputers. intel inaugurated this series of articles on the ISC with the announcement of his co-processor xeon Phi.
Intel Xeon Phi, the gas is actually accelerated by GPU computing (cGPU) known by the codename of Knights Corner ( Larrabee 3 ), accelerator pcie format manufactured with the 22nm manufacturing process Intel Tri-gate, and forming for 50 or more x86 microprocessors, each with a vector calculation unit 16-Wide (shader processors), accompanied by at least 8GB of memory and computing power 1TFlop slightly higher in double-precision calculations.
Intel promotes co-processor Xeon Phi as the perfect companion for its microprocessors Xeon E5-Series and will become the weapon of Intel to increase its market share of supercomputers , a market where major companies such as Bull, Cray, Dell, HP, IBM, Inspur, SGI and NEC say that very soon will present products based on the combination Xeon Xeon E5 + Phi.1TFlop, 22nm, accelerator, ad, cGPU, GPGPU, intel, ISC 2012, knights corner, Larrabee 3, mic, pcie, Phi, server, supercomputer, worstation, xeon
