Chapter 20

Optimizing classical molecular dynamics in LAMMPS

Abstract

LAMMPS results on Knights Landing are discussed. Significant performance improvements on Intel Xeon processors and Knights Landing many-core processors are discussed. The simulations on single-socket Knights Landing processors were up to 1.96 × faster than dual socket Intel Xeon processors in configurations with a significantly lower processor TDP.
