Supercharging Simulation Speeds

Chances are, if you’re using parallel computing workloads, you are driven by performance. So, it should be no surprise that a tool that more than doubles performance of complicated structural engineering simulations would turn heads. That is just the type of performance gain reported by ANSYS Mechanical by optimizing the …

Intel Bets Big on Custom Xeon Chips for Cloud Companies

The company says it expects that custom designs will be on half of the chips it sells to public clouds in 2015. The addition of FPGA to Xeon is designed to make standard chips customizable, too. The record revenue Intel reported for 2014 was driven largely by its emphasis on …

Calculating Pi with Monte Carlo and MKL

The Math Kernel library provides a great way for calculating huge arrays of random numbers. Creating a Monte Carlo simulation is then easy once you have these random numbers. Jeff Cogswell shows how you can use both MKL and a Monte Carlo algorithm to estimate pi, thus learning the mechanics …

Tackling Concurrent Kernel Offloading in Xeon Phi

The Xeon Phi coprocessor includes 61 cores, allowing for great scalability in programs. But some programs don’t scale well, requiring different approaches to maximizing performance. In this blog, Jeff Cogswell explores a chapter from the book “High Performance Parallelism Pearls,” which covers this topic in detail. Here at Go Parallel, …

Solving the N-Body Problem in Parallelism

A common problem in physics and science, the n-body problem requires huge amounts of calculations to solve—making it an excellent application for parallel programming. Jeff Cogswell discusses how a new book that tackles big problems with parallel coding helps solve n-body models as well. If you’re interested in taking your …
