—————-

Core rich environments provide immediate help for scale out applications but not for scale up applications.  Many applications have time to solution requirements that depend on certain computational performance levels.  A case study of the computation intensity of Numerical Weather Prediction with respect to Xeon PHI and GPGPUs will be presented.
