(apologies for any overlaps)

UCI will be hosting a group from Intel for a 2 hr technology briefing at 1pm 
Tuesday afternoon, May 5th (12 days from now).  They will discuss their 
new CPUs, including the integration of the Knights Bridge Phi co-processor 
with the Xeon, their new CPU / system interconnect (Omnipath), as well as 
a number of other technologies, some of which are quite compelling.

They have loaned us their latest 36core/72thread Haswell platform for 
eval, which is equipped with a 2TB PCIe SSD and a Phi coprocessor, for 
those who want to see what this technology will do.  Now incorporated into 
the HPC cluster and available via the pub72phi Q. Currently only has 32GB 
RAM, but will soon be upgraded to at least 192GB.

If you're interested in this talk, or trying out the Haswell, please let me
