AVX-512 extension to OpenQCD 1.6
May 29, 2019
We publish an extension of openQCD-1.6 with AVX-512 vector instructions using Intel intrinsics.
Recent Intel processors support extended instruction sets with operations on 512-bit wide vectors, increasing both the capacity for floating point operations and register memory.
Optimal use of the new capabilities requires reorganising data and floating point operations into these wider vector units.
We report on the implementation and performance of the AVX-512 OpenQCD extension on clusters using Intel Knights Landing and Xeon Scalable (Skylake) CPUs. In complete HMC trajectories with physically relevant parameters we observe a performance increase of 5% to 10%.

Metadata are provided both in "article" format (very similar to INSPIRE) as this helps creating
very compact bibliographies which can be beneficial to authors and
readers, and in "proceeding" format
which is more detailed and complete.
