Question: Progress/Plan for optimizing LAMMPS to Xeon Phi Knights Landing?

Hi,

I'm developing HPC system products that focus on Knights Landing (KNL), the next generation Xeon Phi product
from Intel.
To achieve higher computational performance with KNL, it is very important to optimize application softwares
to KNL. So, I am investigating progress of such optimizations of various HPC applications.

I'd like to help customers implement HPC systems in a planned way, by providing information on development
progress of KNL-related products.

Would you please let me know your progress or plan of optimization of LAMMPS to KNL ?

Best regards,
WATANABE

We’ve had discussions with people from Intel on this.
Are also doing some work internally.
