Allinea offers new levels of performance optimization for the Intel Xeon Phi processor family

22 Jun 2016 Frankfurt - Allinea, a provider of software tools for developing and optimizing code on high performance computers, is launching V6.1 of its tool suite for HPC code developers and users at the ISC16 Exhibition, providing full support for the latest Intel Xeon Phi processor, formerly codenamed "Knights Landing".

Mark O'Connor, VP Product Management at Allinea, stated: "Our latest product enhancements will solidify our customers' investment in the next generation Intel Xeon Phi processor. 'Knights Landing' has the potential to unleash new capabilities for HPC code users and our new release brings a powerful debugger, profiler and performance reports for tackling the essential preparatory work needed to optimize legacy code and realize the processor’s true potential for reducing software run times."

Mark O'Connor continued: "We are also working to educate customers around the benefits of code vectorization using Allinea Forge and Performance Reports. Vectorization can bring a 4x performance boost to code performance on Intel Xeon Phi processor-based systems by applying simple techniques at the right place and making use of Intel’s wide vector operations such the AVX and AVX512 instruction sets."
