In-depth look at Intel Xeon Phi 50-core chip

Posted on Thursday, August 02 2012 @ 20:45:48 CEST by


ExtremeTech takes a close look at Intel's Xeon Phi, the company's upcoming 50-core HPC part. You can learn about it over here.
Intel’s MIC (pronounced “Mike”) began as a hybrid GPU/HPC (high-performance computing) product known as Larrabee. Intel officially announced Larrabee in 2007 and soon claimed that the card would usher in a new era of ray-traced video games and incredible performance. Intel eventually shelved its GPU ambitions once it became clear that Larrabee wasn’t going to be able to match the high-end hardware then available from Teams Green and Red, and rebranded Larrabee as an HPC-only part. The new design was dubbed Knights Ferry (KNF), and Intel began shipping it out to HPC developers in 2010.
