Software Helps JICS/NICS Scientists as They Port Code to New Architectures

The Beacon system at the Joint Institute for Computational Sciences at the University of Tennessee and Oak Ridge National Laboratory is a trailblazer of a new generation of systems using Intel® Xeon Phi™ coprocessor technology. To use this capability effectively, most software applications must be adapted to the hybrid architecture.

Developers at the Application Acceleration Center of Excellence (AACE) are leading the charge—combining multithreaded OpenMP constructs with parallel multiprocess MPI functions in a number of key scientific software packages. Read More
