Highly-parallel processing now available from DALCO

Power your breakthrough innovations with the highly parallel processing of the Intel® Xeon Phi™ coprocessor now available from DALCO.  Intel packed up to a teraFLOPS of double precision peak performance into every chip. Now you can think “reuse” rather than “recode” with x86 compatibility.  Languages, tools, and applications run smoothly across the full spectrum of Intel® Xeon® family-based platforms. Plus, discover the flexibility of a coprocessor that can also host an OS.

DALCO now offers both high performance Workstations and Servers featuring the new Intel® Xeon Phi coprocessor.

A single programming model for all your code

A broad ecosystem of programming languages, models, and tools support the Intel® architecture, and all of them can be used with both the Intel Xeon processors and Intel Xeon Phi coprocessors. Applications that run on one processor family will run on the other. This uniformity can greatly reduce the complexity of software development. Existing applications will need to be tuned and recompiled to maximize throughput, but your develpers won’t need to rethink the entire problem or master new tools and programming models. Instead, they can reuse existing code and maintain a common code base using familiar tools and methods.

A family of coprocessors for diverse needs

Intel Xeon Phi coprocessors provide up to 61 cores, 244 threads, and 1.2 teraFLOPS of performance, and they come in a variety of configurations to address diverse hardware, software, workload, performance, and efficiency requirements.

The Intel® Xeon Phi™ Coprocessor 3100 series

The Intel® Xeon Phi™ Coprocessor 3100 series provides outstanding parallel performance. It is an excellent choice for computer-bound workloads, such as MonteCarlo, Black-Scholes, HPL, LifeSc, and many others.

[Intel® Xeon Phi™ Coprocessor 3120A (6GB, 1.100 GHz, 57 core)]

 

The Intel® Xeon Phi™ Coprocessor 5100 series

The Intel® Xeon Phi™ Coprocessor 5100 series is optimized for high-density computing and is well-suited for workloads that are memory-bandwidth bound, such as STREAM, memory-capacity bound, such as ray-tracing, or both, such as reverse time migration (RTM).

[Intel® Xeon Phi™ Coprocessor 5110P (8GB, 1.053 GHz, 60 core)]

The Intel® Xeon Phi™ Coprocessor 7100 series

The Intel® Xeon Phi™ Coprocessor 7100 series provides the most features and the highest performance and memory capacity of the Intel Xeon Phi product family. The family supports Intel® Turbo Boost Technology 1.0, which increases core frequencies during peak workloads when thermal conditions allow.

Ease of Programming - IA Architecture

Applications can support both Intel® Xeon® processors and Intel® Xeon Phi™ coprocessors which use common languages, models and tools.  Including:

  • Familiar and standard development tools - no need for learning new languages or tools
  • Intel tools like Intel® Cluster Studio XE, as well as many tools from other vendors
  • Popular approaches such as MPI, OpenMP, Fortran’s DO CONCURRENT, Intel® Threading Building Blocks (TBB) , and Intel® Cilk™ Plus

Flexibility - Compute Models

Leverage the compute flexibility of Intel® Xeon Phi™ coprocessors:

  • Use in conjunction with Intel® Xeon® processors to accelerate processing of highly-parallel code
  • Create independent HPC compute nodes with the coprocessor that can have its own IP address and run applications independently – unlike a basic accelerator
