Knights Ferry (KNF) is the first instantiation of the Many Integrated Core (MIC) architecture from Intel. It is a development platform that is enabling scientific application and library developers to prepare for the upcoming products based on the MIC architecture. Intel MIC architecture, while providing the compute potential of a many-core accelerator, has the key advantage of supporting the existing programming models, libraries and tools developed for multi-core platforms. Message Passing Interface (MPI) is the most popular parallel programming model in the scientific computing domain.
