Intel’s many-core “Knights Landing” Xeon Phi processor is just a glimpse of what can be expected of supercomputers in the not-so-distant future of high performance computing.
As the industry continues its march to exascale computing, systems will become more complex, and evolution that will include processors that not only sport a rapidly increasing number of cores but also a broad array of on-chip resources ranging from memory to I/O. Workloads ranging from simulation and modeling applications to data analytics and deep learning algorithms are all expected to benefit from what these new systems will offer in terms of processing capabilities. …Read more
