To be fair to Stu though he did post back in 2013 that he got good
performance improvements on his codes on Xeon Phi for little initial
effort, so that's why they're so attractive to him.



To us though they've proved not that useful, we can only run them
in accelerator mode (due to external constraints) and so we've had
virtually 0 uptake. :-(
