A KNL based cluster (Knights Landing (KNL) ) has been installed in February 2017. The cluster consists of 4 KNL interconnected by OmniPath. Knights Landing (7230) is a highly configurable architecture. Memory bandwidth is one of the common bottlenecks for performance in computational applications. KNL offers a solution to this problem. To do so, the 2nd generation of Intel Xeon Phi (KNL) has on-package high-bandwidth memory (HBM) based on the multi-channel dynamic random access memory (MCDRAM). This memory is capable of delivering up to 5x performance (≥400 GB/s) compared to DDR4 memory on the same platform (≥90 GB/s). The on-package…
