In this paper, we evaluate the performance of such an optimization algorithm on modern accelerators (more specifically, the Intel Multi-core Platform Xeon Haswell, the Intel Many-core Xeon Phi
Knights Corner and the Intel Many-core Xeon Phi

Intel is investing to offer a balanced portfolio of products for high-performance computing, including our leading Intel Xeon Phi
processors and low-latency Intel Omni-Path Architecture, said Barry Davis, General Manager, Accelerated Workload Group, Intel.
The new Xeon Phi
chip will help solve this problem, she says, in part because researchers can use it to design a training system on their own computers and keep using it as they expand to larger networks of servers and eventually at massive scale in the cloud.
In Q1 2016, Intel is scheduled to introduce Knights Landing, its next-generation Xeon Phi
with up to 72 cores and three teraflops of performance, and Nvidia's Pascal GPU will cram 17 billion transistors into a single device using a 16 nm FinFET process from TSMC.
Our current systems are IBM iDataPlex systems based on 2.6 GHz Intel Xeon E5-2670 processors and Intel Xeon Phi
The new Intel Xeon PHI
coprocessors that will be incorporated into Helios will enable researchers to take advantage of increased computing performance.

Chips in the Xeon Phi
range, also called "Knights Corner," work with server CPUs to speed up scientific, math and graphics tasks.
products have always had a much longer cadence than other parts in the consumer or even enterprise - Intel has refreshed its Xeon processors much more quickly, for example - and so, it may be thinking long-term about the future of exascale and choosing to take a hit now rather than risk being dethroned later on.
