Intelís "Knights Landing" Xeon Phi Coprocessor Detailed
Continuing our ISC 2014 news announcements for the week, next up is Intel. Intel has taken to ISC to announce further details about the companyís forthcoming Knights Landing processor, the next generation of Intelís Xeon Phi processors.
While Knights Landing in and of itself is not a new announcement Ė Intel has initially announced it last year Ė Intel has offered very few details on the makeup of the processor until now. However with Knights Landing scheduled to ship in roughly a year from now, Intel is ready to offer up further details about the processor and the capabilities.
As previously announced, as the successor to Intelís existing Knights Corner (1st generation Xeon Phi), Knights Landing makes the jump from using Intelís enhanced Pentium 1 (P54C) x86 cores to using the companyís modern Silvermont x86 cores, which currently lie at the heart of the Intelís Atom processors. These Silvermont cores are far more capable than the older P54C cores and should significantly improve Intelís single threaded performance. All the while these cores are further modified to incorporate AVX units, allowing AVX-512F operations that provide the bulk Knights Landingís computing power and are a similarly potent upgrade over Knights Cornerís more basic 512-bit SIMD units.
