The 2nd generation Intel® Xeon Phi processor (codenamed Knights Landing) is Intel's first self-booting Xeon Phi processor that is aimed at the HPC market. Like its predecessor, KNL is a many-core, highly threaded processor featuring an innovative on-die mesh interconnect and an on-package high bandwidth memory MCDRAM in addition to DRAM DDR-2400, which makes it possible for many HPC applications to achieve much higher performance by leveraging heterogeneous memory configuration.
