PGI’s development tools now support Barcelona, the new AMD quad core Opteron.
PGI compilers and development tools now generate code targeted at Quad-Core AMD Opteron™ processors, code-named “Barcelona”. PGI and AMD are cooperating to provide these compilers to independent software vendors and customers interested in migrating and tuning applications for AMD’s upcoming native quad-core processor.
Software developers can generate code targeted at Quad-Core AMD Opteron processors using the latest version 7.0-7 release of the PGI compilers and tools. Version 7.1 of the PGI compilers and tools, scheduled for general availability in Fall 2007, will include additional features and optimizations for Quad-Core AMD Opteron.
