With a sophisticated customer base for whom performance, reliability, safety, and
innovation are mission critical, Altair is committed to supporting the most up-to-date,
advanced computing architectures. For this reason, Altair joined Intel early on in its
development of the Intel® Many Integrated Core (MIC) and Intel Xeon Phi coprocessor.
This gave Altair a head start in integrating the new technologies into its products and investigating ways to improve performance, scalability, and usability. As one of the first solution providers to port software onto Intel Xeon Phi, Altair is leading the industry in understanding the coprocessor's potential for powering complex simulation software applications and environments.
