Power your breakthrough innovations with the highly parallel processing of the Intel® Xeon Phi™ coprocessor. We’ve packed up to a teraFLOPS of double precision peak performance into every chip—the highest parallel performance per watt of any Intel® Xeon® processor.1,2,3,4 Now you can think “reuse” rather than “recode” with x86 compatibility. Languages, tools, and applications run smoothly across the full spectrum of Intel® Xeon® processor family-based platforms. Plus, discover the flexibility of a coprocessor that can also host an operating system.
With the launch of the Intel® Xeon Phi™ coprocessor 5110P, extracting extreme performance from highly parallel applications just got a lot easier. Part of the Intel® Xeon Phi™ product family, the 5110P is based on Intel® Many Integrated Core Architecture (Intel® MIC Architecture) and complements the industry‐leading performance and energy efficiency of the Intel® Xeon™ processor E5 family.
The Intel® Xeon Phi™ coprocessor—illustrious performance per watt, built to perform brilliantly on your greatest challenges. The only thing more amazing than the Intel® Xeon Phi™ coprocessor is what your research will do with it.

Get up to 1 teraFLOPS of double precision peak performance.1,2,3
Compared with Intel® Xeon® processor E5 family-based servers, the Intel® Xeon Phi™ coprocessor delivers:
Increase server density by up to 7x greater FLOPS per rack by adding Intel® Xeon Phi™ coprocessors to your Intel® Xeon® processor E5 family-based servers.1,3,10
Applications can support both Intel® Xeon® processors and Intel® Xeon Phi™ coprocessors which use common languages, models, and tools, including:
Leverage the compute flexibility of Intel® Xeon Phi™ coprocessors:
1. Software and workloads used in performance tests may have been optimized for performance only on Intel microprocessors. Performance tests, such as SYSmark and MobileMark, are measured using specific computer systems, components, software, operations, and functions. Any change to any of those factors may cause the results to vary. You should consult other information and performance tests to assist you in fully evaluating your contemplated purchases, including the performance of that product when combined with other products. For more information, go to www.intel.com/performance.
2. Claim based on calculated theoretical peak double precision performance capability for a single coprocessor. 16 DP FLOPS/clock/core * 60 cores * 1.053GHz = 1.0108 TeraFlop/s.
3. Results have been estimated based on internal Intel analysis and are provided for informational purposes only. Any difference in system hardware or software design or configuration may affect actual performance.
