The Portland Group recently announced the latest release, version 8.0, of its popular PGI compiler set. This latest release for Linux, OSX and Windows includes full C and Fortran support for the OpenMP 3.0 standard. The latest release also adds support for building and debugging applications for both Linux and OSX. I think even more interesting is the initial support of automatic offloading of parallel computations to CUDA-enabled GPUs. Cool!
Together with PGI Unified Binary technology, which enables developers to leverage the latest CPU innovations from both AMD and Intel while treating x64 processors as a single platform, the new features in PGI 8.0 maximize flexibility and independence for HPC users and large multi-platform supercomputing centers,” said Douglas Miles, director, The Portland Group.
