Numerical software developers and high performance computing services company, NAG, were delighted to be presented with two HPC Innovation Excellence Awards at the International Supercomputing Conference in Leipzig (17-24 June 2013). The Awards were for two of NAG’s many successful application performance improvement projects as part of the UK’s national supercomputing service, HECToR.
The NAG Library for SMP & Multicore has been extended and now includes even more parallelized algorithms enabling users of shared memory systems to solve their numerical problems faster. The NAG Library for SMP & Multicore contains over 1,700 routines – but over a third of the routines in the Library for SMP & Multicore can now utilize multiple cores.
The NAG Library for Intel Xeon Phi contains over 1,700 numerical routines. NAG routines automatically offload, when it is beneficial to do so, compute intensive operations to the Xeon Phi thereby enabling users to transparently exploit the performance of the Xeon Phi. For more advanced users the new NAG Library for Intel Xeon Phi also supports Intel’s Explicit Offload and Native Execution models.
