Intel to release Many Integrated Core using 22nm soon

Written by Nick Farell

Will have 100 MIC developer sites by Christmas
Intel plans to launch its first Many Integrated Core (MIC) using its upcoming 22nm process technology. Chipzilla said that it also expects to have more than 100 developer sites for MIC by the end of 2011.

The add-on accelerators Intel MIC micro-architecture provides are  expected to be used for highly parallel applications in high performance computing segments such as scientific exploration and research and weather modeling. But like AMD FireStream or Nvidia Tesla, Intel does not want its technology to replace processors  but be used to speed up certain applications.

Intel insists that x86 compatibility with x86 will give MIC  unique advantages. Kirk Skaugen, vice president of the Intel architecture group and general manager of Intel's data center group, during his keynote at the Intel Developer Forum (IDF) said that a MIC would be like a co-processor where you can use the same compilers, the same tools, the same VTunesthat power around 90 per cent of the Top 500 computers.

The next generation you run the compiler, it will optimise the workloads for the Intel cores, that are in the Xeon CPUs, and it will optimize on these new PCI Express cards that will have more than 50 cores and be on our 22nm process technology. So it will automatically balance that workload for the highest-parallel workloads on the planet, he promised.

So far Intel has supplied code-named Knights Ferry MIC test platform to select developers and plans to expand the number of developers, who can have the hardware, to one hundred by the end of 2011.

Did they actually say they are releasing their 22nm MIC soon?

From what I've read they just releasing 100 more of their existing Knights Ferry MIC to developers.
From memory Knights Ferry was on par with the GTX 280 series.

Odd, looks like the SAME EXACT mistake made in the Xbit-labs article they posted yesterday...

We've found yet another one of Fud's "sources."

Is this the Intel GPU which started with big noise and went virtually silent before its expected release?

It does not need to beat ATI and Nvidia at start but why Intel's wants to beat them at first release? Now they are two steps behind and going farther.

22nm will only get Intel so far. They need to accept that x86 can not do everything everywhere!

It might be easier to write for x86 but at the end of the day if CUDA is significantly faster than developers will just spend a little longer writing the program and have it must faster.

Intel needs to release this soon and give them away with their high-end CPUs as they don't have QuickSync so you will have a $1000 CPU getting its ass handed to it by a $150 when transcoding and encoding!

I'm only looking for reasons never to visit this site again. I think this pretty much makes my mind up for me.

So long Fudzilla.

LOL a math coprocessor. They should have called it Intel DX. :D
