High Performance Computing Center North
Intel Xeon Phi x200, codename Knights Landing (KNL), is second generation MIC architecture product from Intel. At HPC2N 36 nodes, as a part of Kebnekaise, are equipped with Intel Xeon Phi 7250 CPUs. See our description of Intel Knight Landing for more information about the nodes.
At a high level there are three key aspects to achieving code performance on KNL:
Kebnekaise is the latest supercomputer at HPC2N. It is named after the massif of the same name, which has some of Sweden's highest mountain peaks (Sydtoppen and Nordtoppen). Just as the massif, the supercomputer Kebnekaise is a system with many faces.
