Intel teases 22nm Larrabee offspring at HPC conference

Posted on Tuesday, June 21 2011 @ 14:24:02 CEST by

The Tech Report writes Intel showed off the 22nm Knights Ferry at the International Supercomputing Conference in Hamburg. This x86 many-core product is basically Larrabee silicon redesigned for high-performance computing.
Intel says some of its partners at the conference showed early performance results obtained with Knights Ferry. Those partners include Forschungszentrum Juelich, CERN, the Korea Institute of Science and Technology Information, and the Leibniz Supercomputing Centre, which contributed a juicy quote for the press release:

“The programming model advantage of Intel MIC architecture enabled us to quickly scale our applications running on Intel Xeon processors to the Knights Ferry Software Development Platform,” said Prof. Arndt Bode of the Leibniz Supercomputing Centre. “This workload was originally developed and optimized for Intel Xeon processors but due to the familiarity of the programming model we could optimize the code for the Intel MIC architecture within hours and also achieved over 650 GFLOPS of performance.”
