NAG launches numerical software to support Intel Xeon Phi coprocessors

The Numerical Algorithms Group has launched numerical software and services to support customer adoption of Intel Xeon Phi coprocessors.
Salt Lake City, Utah - The Numerical Algorithms Group (NAG) said it has launched numerical software and services to support customer adoption of Intel Xeon Phi coprocessors.
Routines from the NAG Library, running on the Intel Xeon Phi coprocessor, offload intensive computations to the coprocessor when it is efficient to do so. This enables users to exploit the power of the Intel Xeon Phi coprocessor transparently.
NAG will also provide software engineering and performance services for Intel Xeon Phi coprocessors, supporting customers migrate their own application codes to take advantage of Intel's new product.
The NAG Library now comprises more than 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," the group said. "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."
