Interview: The Evolving OpenACC for HPC Accelerators

Over at the Cray Blog, David Wallace looks at OpenACC, its programming benefits, and how it is evolving as an industry coalition. OpenACC allows HPC programmers to worry more about the problem they are trying to solve and less about the language and hardware they are using to solve the problem. By enabling parallelism via […]

Cray Enhances Coprocessor and Accelerator Support for OpenACC 2.0

Today Cray introduced new OpenACC 2.0 support for directives-based programming of accelerators and coprocessors in the company’s supercomputers. Leveraging years of successful production accelerator experience and supercomputing domain knowledge, the Cray OpenACC programming implementation now supports Nvidia Tesla GPU accelerators and Intel Xeon Phi coprocessors on the Cray XC30 series of supercomputers. Congratulations to Cray […]

PGI Accelerator Goes Beta with Support for OpenACC on APUs

Today The Portland Group announced that their new PGI Beta release supports OpenACC directive-based accelerator programming for AMD APUs and discrete GPUs. One of PGI’s goals is to increase productivity and provide performance portability for applications developed and maintained by science and engineering domain experts,” said Douglas Miles, Director of The Portland Group. “The OpenACC […]
