During the last two years, one of the longest eras in programming has quietly drawn to a close.
How tuning functions for large data sets and profiling the results gets most of the benefits of the Phi's 60 cores without hand wringing and late-night hacking.
The key to truly high performance with the Phi coprocessor is to express sufficient parallelism and vector capability to fully utilize the device. Here is a timing framework that enables you to measure and optimize performance and push it past 1 teraflop.
Concurrent access to trees and lists requires carefully managed fine-grained locking. Here's a generic solution in C# that removes many of the typical problems.
Convert programs into a series of independent executable parallel tasks.
Silvermont features new multicore and system fabric architecture scalable up to eight cores, enabling greater performance for higher bandwidth, lower latency and more efficient out-of-order support for a better balanced and responsive system.
