At SC13 this week, the OpenMP Consortium showcased OpenMP 4.0, a major upgrade of the OpenMP standard language specifications. The OpenMP 4.0 standard API supports the programming of accelerators, SIMD programming, and better optimization using thread affinity.
OpenMP 4.0 is a big step towards increasing user productivity for multi-and many-core programming”, says Dieter an Mey, Leader of the HPC Team at RWTH Aachen University. “Standardizing accelerator programming, adding task dependencies, SIMD support, cancellation, and NUMA awareness will make OpenMP an even more attractive parallel programming paradigm for a growing user community.”
