Parallel is the Path Forward

More organizations than ever are looking to complement their next technical server with an accelerator or coprocessor. Now, with the arrival of the NEW Intel® Xeon Phi™ coprocessor starter kit, there’s never been a better time to go parallel.1

 

Why Intel® Xeon Phi™ Coprocessors?

Intel® Architecture compatibility means that you can focus more time on solving your most important problems and less time learning a new programming model. Moreover, your parallel code optimizations will simultaneously optimize parallel performance on Intel® Xeon® processors and Intel® Xeon Phi™ coprocessors. With up to 61 cores, 244 threads, 512-bit vectors, and 352 GB/s memory bandwidth, the Intel® Xeon Phi™ product family delivers breakthrough performance and maximum ROI.2,3,4,5

2    Software and workloads used in performance tests may have been optimized for performance only on Intel microprocessors. Performance tests, such as SYSmark and MobileMark, are measured using specific computer systems, components, software, operations, and functions. Any change to any of those factors may cause the results to vary. You should consult other information and performance tests to assist you in fully evaluating your contemplated purchases, including the performance of that product when combined with other products.
