The paper presents investigations on the implementation and performance of the finite element numerical integration algorithm for first order approximations and three processor architectures, popular in scientific computing, classical CPU, Intel Xeon Phi and NVIDIA Kepler GPU. A unifying programming model and portable OpenCL implementation is considered for all architectures. Variations of the algorithm due to different problems solved and different element types are investigated and several optimizations aimed at proper optimization and mapping of the algorithm to computer architectures are demonstrated. Performance models of execution are developed for different processors and tested in practical experiments. The results show the varying levels of performance for different architectures, but indicate that the algorithm can be effectively ported to all of them. The general conclusion is that the finite element numerical integration can achieve sufficient performance on different multi- and many-core architectures and should not become a performance bottleneck for finite element simulation codes. Specific observations lead to practical advises on how to optimize the kernels and what performance can be expected for the tested architectures.
