ICL becomes the newest Intel Parallel Computing Center (IPCC)
2014-09-30

The Innovative Computing Laboratory (ICL) at the University of Tennessee, Knoxville became the newest Intel Parallel Computing Center (IPCC).  The objective of the ICL's IPCC is the development and optimization of numerical linear algebra libraries and technologies for applications, while tackling current challenges in heterogeneous Intel® Xeon Phi™ coprocessor-based High Performance Computing. In collaboration with Intel's MKL team, the IPCC at ICL will modernize the popular LAPACK and ScaLAPACK libraries to run efficiently on current and future manycore architectures, and will disseminate the developments through the open source MAGMA MIC library.


MAGMA MIC 1.2 for Intel Xeon Phi Coprocessors Released
2014-09-17

MAGMA MIC 1.2 is now available. This release provides implementations for MAGMA's one-sided (LU, QR, and Cholesky) and two-sided (Hessenberg, bi- and tridiagonal reductions) dense matrix factorizations, as well as linear and eigenproblem solver for Intel Xeon Phi Coprocessors. More information on the approach is given in this presentation.

The MAGMA MIC 1.2 release adds usage and performance improvements.

See the Software section for a download link.


MAGMA 1.5.0 released
2014-09-02
MAGMA 1.5.0 is now available. This release provides performance improvements for SVD and eigenvector routines, and adds sparse routines. More information is given in the MAGMA: a New Generation of Linear Algebra Libraries for GPU and Multicore Architectures presentation as well as the MAGMA Quick Reference Guide. The MAGMA 1.5.0 release adds the following new functionalities:
  • SVD using Divide and Conquer (gesdd)
  • Nonsymmetric eigenvector computation is multi-threaded (trevc3_mt)
  • Sparse functions
  • Doxygen documentation included
Parameters (trans, uplo, etc.) now use symbolic constants (MagmaNoTrans, MagmaLower, etc.) instead of characters ('N', 'L', etc.). Converters are provided to translate these to LAPACK, CUBLAS, and CBLAS constants. There are also improved testers and numerous bug fixes.

See the Downloads section for a download link.
