  • Date: 13th October 2021 9am PDF

Heterogeneous computing comes with the challenge of designing code that can work in multi-processor/accelerator environments. Developers need to be equipped with the right set of metrics to make informed design and optimization decisions that take advantage of target hardware.

In Part 1 of this 2-part webinar series, Technical Consulting Engineer Cory Levels focuses on designing software for efficient offload from CPUs to GPUS—even before final hardware is available—using Intel® Advisor. Using a walkthrough of an ISO 3DFD example (3D isotropic Finite Difference), you will learn how to:

  • Optimize your CPU application for memory and compute
  • Identify efficient GPU offload opportunities and quantify the potential performance speed up
  • See performance headroom of your GPU offloaded code against hardware limitations, and get insights for an effective optimization roadmap

How to Install Intel® oneAPI Toolkits

In this four-minute video, Intel’s David Liu provides installation instructions for an offline/local installation of Intel’s oneAPI Toolkits. David shows you where to find the Intel oneAPI Toolkits, how to download the toolkits, and the various ways to install the toolkits: from the GUI or from the command line (a silent install without the GUI, an interactive install, or a custom install).
