Code Modernization: Where to Start Tuning Your Applications

In 2018, Intel® MPI Library will be upgrading to next-generation MPICH*—the exascale source used by Argonne National Labs. Find out the benefits.

It’s no longer a nice-to-have. Code modernization—i.e., developing applications to take advantage of multiple cores (Intel® Xeon Phi™ has up to 72 of them) and other heterogeneous computing hardware—is the expectation. So how do you do it?

This technical webinar will dive into answers, including using Intel® Parallel Studio XE to help get the job done. What you’ll learn:

  • A methodology for getting the most performance from your hardware (hint: it includes threading, vectorization, and a focus on memory hierarchy)
  • Recommendations for where to start tuning your applications
  • How to tune cross-node parallelism using the Intel® MPI Library

Join us. And be sure to download the free trial of Intel Parallel Studio XE.
