Programmers Trade Knowledge on Xeon Phi Processor at IXPUG Conference

Scientific Computing

If you want to figure out how to get the most out of a brand new supercomputer, try crowdsourcing. That’s the idea behind the Intel® Xeon Phi™ User's Group (IXPUG), the user group for the new Intel Xeon Phi “manycore” processor that is the heart of the new Theta machine recently installed at the...
