NAG supports Intel Xeon Phi coprocessors

Share this on social media:

The Numerical Algorithms Group (NAG) has announced numerical software and services to support the adoption of Intel Xeon Phi coprocessors. Routines from the NAG Library, running on the coprocessor, offload intensive computations to the coprocessor when it is efficient to do so. Software engineering and performance services for the coprocessors will also be provided by NAG, supporting customers migrate their own application codes to take advantage of Intel’s new product.

Now comprising more than 1,700 routines, the NAG Library provides an industry benchmark for accuracy, quality, reliability and documentation standards. Performance-sensitive routines are updated with each library release to work efficiently on parallel computing systems using standards such as OpenMP and MPI. NAG has tuned and tested parallel routines for running on the Intel Xeon Phi coprocessor, which offers an order of magnitude more threads than traditional multicore processors.
