"The publicly available ELPA library provides highly efficient and highly scalable direct eigensolvers for symmetric (hermitian) matrices targeting all kinds of HPC systems up to the current exascale class. ELPA works on CPUs and on discrete GPUs. For those devices, SYCL* is an API for writing portable (one source) codes that run across multiple architectures with similar performance. The Max Planck Computing and Data Facility (MPCDF), in collaboration with Intel engineers, took the effort to develop a SYCL back end for Intel® GPUs.''

"We are always looking for new methods to accelerate workloads in our data center. Our teams used Intel® VTune™ Profiler flame graph feature and found it intuitive to use and practical for interpreting performance data. This tool [part of the Intel® oneAPI Base Toolkit] has become essential to optimizing code and workflows, and its ability to work across Intel CPUs and GPUs adds to our productivity and performance optimization efforts."

— Dr. Markus Rampp, head of HPC Applications division and deputy director, Max Planck Computing and Data Facility
