in high performance technical and scientific computing software, today
announced support for the new Dual Core Intel Itanium 2 processor 9000
series. OptimaNumerics Libraries further enhances application performance
for high performance computer users.
"New dual-core Intel Itanium 2 processors running with OptimaNumerics
Libraries enables technical computing users to achieve higher levels
of performance than ever before, and tackle ever larger and more
advanced computations. OptimaNumerics is delighted to support the
dual-core Intel Itanium 2 platform," says Dr Kenneth Tan,
OptimaNumerics founder and CEO.
"Performance can be dramatically accelerated when technical computing
libraries are combined with the recent advances in parallel processor
architecture," said Jason Waxman, Director, Intel Server Platforms
Group. "The combination of mathematical processing software from
OptimaNumerics with our new Dual-core Intel Itanium 2 processors will
reduce execution time and improve precision for complex scientific and
With the highly efficient OptimaNumerics Libraries, dual-core Intel
Itanium 2 end users will be able to perform computations at new higher
levels of efficiency.
OptimaNumerics Libraries, with linear algebra, parallel linear algebra
and parallel random number generators modules, provide high
performance versions of LAPACK, ScaLAPACK, PETSc, SuperLU, PLFG and
SPRNG libraries. OptimaNumerics has benchmarked computational
solution performance improvement of up to 13 times on SGI Altix
OptimaNumerics' innovative technologies have consistently delivered
superior performance and portability across a wide range of platforms
including: the Intel Xeon, Intel Xeon EM64T and Intel Itanium 2
processor families, plus platforms from other vendors, running Linux,
Microsoft Windows, and UNIX.
