This week CAPS announced a new version of its directive-based CAPS Compiler in support of the new Intel® Xeon Phi™ coprocessor based on the Intel® Many Integrated Core (MIC) architecture. CAPS customers will be able to easily port their scientific applications that already use directives and directly benefit from the improved capabilities of Intel Xeon Phi coprocessor. CAPS source-to-source compilers integrate a powerful OpenCL parallel code generator that is can be very effective.
With the ongoing standardization effort in the directive-based programming such as OpenMP for accelerators, we believe our customers will be able to keep their legacy codes portable across those architectures,” said François Bodin, CAPS CTO. “By using these tools, our customers can easily accelerate their use of manycore architectures.”
