Knights Landing

The chip Intel demonstrated this week had 30 tiles for a total of 60 cores and 240 threads (four threads per physical core), but the company says the final version will have more than 60 cores

Knights Landing will deliver 3 teraflops double-precision and 6 teraflops single-precision.

Knights Landing can be used on its own as a host CPU. It is binary compatible with the mainstream Xeon v3 Haswell server chips, supports the same instructions (with the exception of transactional memory), and can run Linux or Windows Server.


Boinc will "recognize" this hw?? :-)

As a named GPU? Probably not.
As a(n unnamed) coprocessor? As long as it has drivers, probably.

I have asked a hand full of projects about this and the response has either been:
1. Not enough people with them to bother attempting to code.
2. We gave it a whirl and it wasn't efficient enough to mess with.
3. Don't have access to one and are too busy as it is even if they had access to one.

Bottom line is that yes BOINC "could" use them. It is mostly up to the projects to decide to bother with them.
