Intel Xeon Phi Coprocessor High Performance Programming Book

Our book Intel Xeon Phi Corpocessor High Performance Programming (ISBN 978-0-124-10414-3) will be available from the publisher Morgan Kaufmann in February 2013, and many book sellers (including Amazon.com).
Pushing computing to new heights is among one of the most exciting human endeavors both for the thrill of doing it, and the thrill of what it makes possible.
The Intel® Many Integrated Core (MIC) architecture and the first Intel® Xeon Phi™ coprocessor have brought us one of those rare, and very important, new chapters in this quest to push computing to new limits.
Jim and James spent two years helping educate customers about the prototype and pre-production hardware before Intel introduced the first Intel® Xeon Phi™ coprocessor. They have distilled their own experiences coupled with insights from many expert customers, Intel Field Engineers, Application Engineers and Technical Consulting Engineers, to create this authoritative first book on programming for this new architecture and these new products.
This book is useful even before you ever touch a system with an Intel® Xeon Phi™ coprocessor. The key techniques emphasized in this book are essential to programming any modern parallel computing system whether based on Intel Xeon processors, Intel Xeon Phi coprocessors, or other high performance microprocessors. Applying these techniques will generally increase your program performance on any system, and better prepare you for Intel Xeon Phi coprocessors and the Intel MIC architecture.
