Today Nvidia announced that it will provide the source code for the new Nvidia CUDA LLVM-based compiler to qualified academic researchers and software tools developers.
Opening up the CUDA platform is a significant step,” said Sudhakar Yalamanchili, professor at Georgia Institute of Technology and lead of the Ocelot project, which maps software written in CUDA C to different processor architectures. “The future of computing is heterogeneous, and the CUDA programming model provides a powerful way to maximize performance on many different types of processors, including AMD GPUs and Intel x86 CPUs.”
Early access to the CUDA compiler source code is available for qualified academic researchers and software tools developers by registering here: http://developer.nvidia.com/cuda-source.
