Porting to Intel Knights Landing
SEISCOPE is a consortium managed by the 3 French public laboratories LJK, Geoazur and ISTERRE, and sponsored by 9 Oil & Gas companies working together in quantitative seismic imaging, with the aim to reap the outcome of their common R&D endeavor to enhance their operations.
As part of SEISCOPE, an efficient 3D finite-difference time-domain modelling and frequency domain inversion code of Full Waveform Inversion called GeoInv3D is developed. GeoInv3D is memory bounded and is expected to benefit from Intel High Memory Bandwidth MCDRAM that equips the last generation of Intel® Xeon Phi™ Knights Landing (KNL) processors.
Atos’s Center for Excellence in Parallel Programming presents results obtained on an Intel® Xeon Phi™ processor (7210).
