OpenMP 4.0 Specifications Released

The OpenMP 4.0 API Specification is released with Significant New Standard Features

The OpenMP 4.0 API supports the programming of accelerators, SIMD programming, and better optimization using thread affinity

The OpenMP Consortium has released OpenMP API 4.0, a major upgrade of the OpenMP API standard language specifications. Besides several major enhancements, this release provides a new mechanism to describe regions of code where data and/or computation should be moved to another computing device.

Bronis R. de Supinski, Chair of the OpenMP Language Committee, stated that “OpenMP 4.0 API is a major advance that adds two new forms of parallelism in the form of device constructs and SIMD constructs. It also includes several significant extensions for the loop-based and task-based forms of parallelism already supported in the OpenMP 3.1 API.

The 4.0 specification is now available on the 

Standard for parallel programming extends its reach

With this release, the OpenMP API specifications, the de-facto standard for parallel programming on shared memory systems, continues to extend its reach beyond pure HPC to include DSPs, real time systems, and accelerators. The OpenMP API aims to provide high-level parallel language support for a wide range of applications, from automotive and aeronautics to biotech, automation, robotics and financial analysis.

New features in the OpenMP 4.0 API include:

· Support for accelerators. The OpenMP 4.0 API specification effort included significant participation by all the major vendors in order to support a wide variety of compute devices. OpenMP API provides mechanisms to describe regions of code where data and/or computation should be moved to another computing device. Several prototypes for the accelerator proposal have already been implemented.

· SIMD constructs to vectorize both serial as well as parallelized loops. With the advent of SIMD units in all major processor chips, portable support for accessing them is essential. OpenMP 4.0 API provides mechanisms to describe when multiple iterations of the loop can be executed concurrently using SIMD instructions and to describe how to create versions of functions that can be invoked across SIMD lanes.

· Error handling. OpenMP 4.0 API defines error handling capabilities to improve the resiliency and stability of OpenMP applications in the presence of system-level, runtime-level, and user-defined errors. Features to abort parallel OpenMP execution cleanly have been defined, based on conditional cancellation and user-defined cancellation points.

· Thread affinity. OpenMP 4.0 API provides mechanisms to define where to execute OpenMP threads. Platform-specific data and algorithm-specific properties are separated, offering a deterministic behavior and simplicity in use. The advantages for the user are better locality, less false sharing and more memory bandwidth.

· Tasking extensions. OpenMP 4.0 API provides several extensions to its task-based parallelism support. Tasks can be grouped to support deep task synchronization and task groups can be aborted to reflect completion of cooperative tasking activities such as search. Task-to-task synchronization is now supported through the specification of task dependency.

· Support for Fortran 2003. The Fortran 2003 standard adds many modern computer language features. Having these features in the specification allows users to parallelize Fortran 2003 compliant programs. This includes interoperability of Fortran and C, which is one of the most popular features in Fortran 2003.

· User-defined reductions. Previously, OpenMP API only supported reductions with base language operators and intrinsic procedures. With OpenMP 4.0 API, user-defined reductions are now also supported.

· Sequentially consistent atomics. A clause has been added to allow a programmer to enforce sequential consistency when a specific storage location is accessed atomically.

This represents collaborative work by many of the brightest in industry, research, and academia, building on the consensus of 26 members. We strive to deliver high-level parallelism that is portable across 3 widely-implemented common General Purpose languages, productive for HPC and consumers, and delivers highly competitive performance. I want to congratulate all the members for coming together to create such a momentous advancement in parallel programming, under such tight constraints and industry challenges.
With this release, the OpenMP API will move immediately forward to the next release to bring even more usable parallelism to everyone.

UBT and U. Learning Solutions for System Development Education

JAKARTA – The education gap that occurred in Indonesia led to many obstacles in the implementation of teaching activities, especially for remote areas far from urban centers.
Lack of infrastructure facilities and educators make the achievement of quality education in Indonesia less than the maximum. Supposedly the Communications Director of PT Surya Inti Word Tonny A. . Era in which the IT department, this issue should not have terjadi0.
To meet the challenges of globalization in the era of fast-paced communication and transparency as today, required education system effective and efficient. One of these systems Ubiquitous Base Test (UBT) & Ubiquitos-Learning (U-Learning) Platform.
Word is said Tonny A. UBT and U-Learning is introduced by the company North Star Developer’s Village (NSDevil) from Korea, is one of the solutions for the accelerated development of the education system is effective and efficient.
According to him, with the innovation of new technologies such NSDevil, various limitations and problems in the teaching process can be overcome.

3 Reasons to Sell Your Intel Stock

Although Intel (NASDAQ: INTC  ) stock may look cheap compared to theS&P 500, there’s good reason for the low price tag. Between a faltering PC market, anemic revenue growth, and profitability concerns, Intel investors have a lot of things to worry about. Together, these factors certainly beg the question: Should you sell your Intel stock today?

PC sales still top dog
As exciting as it is for Intel to develop cutting-edge technology that threatens ARM Holdings‘ mobile computing stronghold, the company remains deeply entrenched in the PC market. Intelreported its second-quarter earnings results last week, showing that more than 63% of the company’s revenue came from its PC client group segment. With worldwide PC shipments as bad as they’ve been, it’s not surprising that investor enthusiasm would be muted toward the company’s mobile computing ambitions. Simply put, it’s going to take a considerably large tail to wag this dog.

Anemic revenue growth
Without revenue growth, a company’s earnings growth potential is dampened because there’s only so far cost-cutting can take profitability to new heights. Intel lowered its full-year forecast, now expecting revenue to be flat year over year, which doesn’t bode well for profit growth. Analysts expect Intel to post a 12.2% decline in earnings this year and grow by 5.9% in full-year 2014, driven by a 3.9% increase in revenue. For the long-term investor, profitability growth remains a fundamental driver of shareholder returns. Will a 5.9% growth in earnings from a weak comparable be enough to drive Intel stock higher?

Falling prices
Assuming Intel is successful as it gears up to enter the ultra-mobile space with its upcomingBay Trail processor, it’ll likely have a negative impact on the company’s average processor selling price. In order for Bay Trail to gain market share against the ARM competition, I’m expecting its average selling price to be somewhere in neighborhood of Qualcomm‘s, which is about $22 — roughly one-fifth of Intel’s estimated average selling price of $107. Additionally, the mobile computing revolution continues to put negative pressure on the price of PCs, further compounding Intel’s average selling price pressures.

The hope is that any future decline in processor average selling price can be offset with an increase in unit volume, but that’s not guaranteed, nor does it mean total dollar profits will remain stable. Even if Bay Trail can maintain profit margins in line with the rest of Intel’s processors, a $22 or even $30 processor simply doesn’t have as much available profit as a $107 chip.

Ultimately, Intel’s profitability prospects will be driven by a number of variables, including how the overall PC market fares, if average selling prices decline due to consumers shifting to products like Bay Trail, and if Intel can make up any shortfalls with sufficient unit growth. It’s not exactly clear-cut.

No catalyst in sight
We may get a better sense of Intel’s future prospects during its investor meeting in November, but it likely won’t be until its 2014 earnings results that investors begin to get the scoop how these headwinds are actually influencing results. At that time, Intel’s Haswell and Bay Trail processors will have made their run, investors will know if the PC market has begun to stabilize, and we’ll know if ultra-mobile products are hurting Intel’s total profitability thanks to declining prices.

If you’re an Intel shareholder, the question you should ask yourself is if it’s worth waiting around for the clouds of uncertainty to potentially clear up. Being a longtime Intel stock owner myself, I’m seriously considering taking my own advice and selling my shares in the coming weeks. There are plenty of compelling opportunities where the path to long-term shareholder success is much clearer.

SCREEN

Screen Aspire V5-122 is able to produce high levels of brightness. Using glossy reflective technology, the Aspire V5-122 black color makes it look more dense and the resulting image sharpness deeper than the regular screen.

Only, with a relatively cheap price than the ultrabook, Acer just immerse the display with a standard resolution, 1,366 x 768 pixels only. That is, watch the video with 1080p high definition resolution was less than optimal on-screen Aspire V5-122’s.

Moreover, with the use of the Windows 8 operating system and the increasing number of applications that require content HD screen resolution, screen technology Aspire V5-122 feels a little left behind.

PERFORMANCE

Acer Aspire V5-122 is equipped with AMD processors Jaguar Temash APU A6-1450 quad-core processors with speeds up to 1 GHz of computing processes. As for the graphics processing embedded AMD Radeon HD 8280G which has a thermal design power (TDP), only 8 watts.

Jaguar AMD A6-1450 APU processor is the new output. This low-power processor platform is the successor of Zacate and Ontario, the first generation processor which is equipped with power-saving features with four cores.

Low power consumption that makes the battery life to be quite long. During the trial, Tempo get the battery can last up to 5 hours with normal use and use the Wi-Fi connectivity.

To support the performance of the processor, Acer relies DDR 3 RAM memory of 6 GB with a storage capacity of 500 GB hard-disk. Hard-disk usage is what makes the Aspire V5-122 can not be called as an ultrabook, but of course the use processors made by AMD.

CONCLUSION

Pegged at a relatively affordable price, about Rp 5.5 million, Acer Aspire V5-122 can be regarded as a substitute for the ultrabook much cheaper price. Elegant design and weighs only 1.3 pounds, this slim notebook comfortable to carry around.

As a colleague, Aspire V5-122 can be relied upon, especially he amplified output low-power processors AMD. In the market, the Aspire V5-122 directly compete with VivoBook S200E Asus, Lenovo IdeaPad Yoga 11, Lenovo ThinkPad Edge E130 and Sony Vaio SVE 1111.
