The Numerical Algorithms Group's numerical software now supports Intel Xeon Phi coprocessors, enabling intensive computations to be offloaded to the coprocessor when it is efficient to do so.

At SC12, the Super Computing conference taking place this week in Salt Lake City, NAG has announced numerical software and services to support customer adoption of Intel Xeon Phi coprocessors. Routines from the NAG Library can now exploit the power of the Xeon Phi coprocessor transparently and NAG is also providing software engineering and performance services to help customers migrate their own application codes to take advantage of Intel’s new product.

The NAG Library has over 1,700 routines. Performance sensitive routines are updated with each library release to work efficiently on parallel computing systems using standards such as OpenMP and MPI. NAG has tuned and tested parallel routines for running on the Intel Xeon Phi coprocessor, which offers an order of magnitude more threads than traditional multicore processors. More information on NAG support for multicore processors and manycore coprocessors can be found in the NAG Library for SMP & Multicore.
