Intel Corp. announced Tuesday the production release of the Intel software development kit (SDK) for OpenCL Applications XE 2013 that launched as a beta program in December. The new SDK broadens options for developers on Intel architecture and includes tools, optimization guides and training.

The SDK helps OpenCL developers improve performance and efficiency on Intel Xeon Phi coprocessors and Intel Xeon processors as well as create highly parallel applications for high performance computing workstations, data analytics and other uses. Software makers will now be able to take advantage of OpenCL 1.2 application programming interface when developing programs for Xeon Phi co-processors for high-performance computing.

Based on the Intel Many Integrated Core (Intel MIC) architecture, Intel Xeon Phi coprocessors delivers high performance for highly parallel applications.

The Intel Xeon Phi coprocessor 5110P, the only Xeon Phi available today commercially, features 60 cores with 4-way simultaneous multi-threading technology and 512KB L2 cache per core, provides additional performance at a lower power envelope. It reaches 1.01TFLOPS double-precision performance, and supports 8GB of GDDR5 memory at a higher 320 GB/sec memory bandwidth. With 225 watts TDP, the passively cooled Intel Xeon Phi coprocessor 5110P delivers power efficiency that is ideal for dense computing environments, and is aimed at capacity-bound workloads such as digital content creation and energy research. This processor has been delivered to early customers and featured in the 40th edition of the top500 list. The Intel Xeon Phi coprocessor 5110P has recommended customer price of $2649.
