Need a help

Post by MaxP » Thu Aug 29, 2019 8:56 pm

Hi!

Which processor works best for MICRESS. Intel or Amd? Specifically, I want to compare the performance of an Intel Xeon processor and Amd Opteron processor.

Will MICRESS work on GPU?

Thanks.

MICRESS is compiled with an Intel compiler.
However, compilation uses standard options and is not optimized for peak performance on Intel processors. So, I guess disadvantages for AMD processors are minimized. I never compared.

The parallel version uses OpenMP for CPU thread based, shared memory parallelization. No GPU usage.
