In this video from the Nvidia booth at SC13, Michael Wolfe presents on OpenACC. “The OpenACC API provides a high-level, performance portable programming mechanism for parallel programming accelerated nodes. Learn about the latest additions to the OpenACC specification, and see the PGI Accelerator compilers in action targeting the fastest NVIDIA GPUs.”

A Deep Dive into Data Management in OpenACC

Open ACC version 2.0 is using enhanced data management capabilities in its quest to become the de facto standard for directive-based accelerators programming in C/C++ and Fortran.

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 […]
