MAGMA 1.6.0 released
2014-11-15
MAGMA 1.6.0 is now available. This release provides performance improvements and increased functionality. More information is given in the MAGMA 1.6 Quick Reference Flier. The MAGMA 1.6.0 release adds the following new functionalities:
  • MAGMA Batched linear algebra routines:
    • BATCHED MAGMA BLAS including gemm, gemv, herk, and trsm
    • BATCHED LU, GETRI, and Cholesky factorizations
  • Bunch-Kaufman factorization (and solver) for symmetric indefinite matrices
    {z|c|d|s}{he|sy}trf
  • Non-pivoted LDLt
  • Random Butterfly Transformation (RBT) and solver based on RBT + LU without pivoting + iterative refinement
  • MAGMA Sparse routines.

There are also improved testers and bug fixes. Support for the new Tesla K80 "GK210-Duo" is provided through MAGMA's multiGPU routines (see the MAGMA LU Benchmark on up to four K80s).

MAGMA MIC 1.3 for Intel Xeon Phi Coprocessors Released
2014-11-15

MAGMA MIC 1.3 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 1.3 release adds
  • Usage and performance improvements
  • Bunch-Kaufman factorization for symmetric indefinite matrices
    {z|c|d|s}{he|sy}trf
  • LU without pivoting in CPU and MIC interfaces
    {z|c|d|s}getrf_nopiv[mic]
  • Random Butterfly Transformation (RBT)
  • A new solver based on RBT + LU without pivoting + iterative refinement

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.
