Has anyone tried compiling/running GraphLab on an Intel Xeon Phi Coprocessor (sometimes referred to as a MIC board), a 60-core SMP coprocessor attached via PCI-e. (http://www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/processors/xeon/xeon-phi-detail.html)
It looks like code must be recompiled using the Intel provided compiler for the device. And the device lacks some special instruction sets like MMX, SSE, and AVX (although it does have its own 512 bit wide SIMD vector ISA). Does GraphLab explicitly use those instruction sets?
