High performance computing (HPC) applications implement complex scientific models that will require many thousands of calculations to be performed during a realistic simulation. The advanced processing capability of modern CPUs are very well suited to this type of operation. In particular, the use of vector (or Single Instruction Multiple Data) based instructions in an application will help to fully exploit hardware processing capability. It is therefore important to understand how well your application is making use of vectorization.
In this webinar, Phil Ridley (Field Application Engineer at Arm), demonstrates how — by focusing on vectorization — developers can help maximize application use of a CPU's vectorization capability on HPC systems.
