At present, the Xeon Phi supports only the acceleration of the linear algebra part of QE. Depending on the input data-set, this could lead up to a 20% of speed-up respect to only cpu.
Notably, the actual Xeon Phi Knights Corner architecture will be soon replaced by the Xeon Phi Knights Landing architecture. The latter will be no more a co-processor, but a stand-alone manycore processor.
