OpenHMPP Open Standard Is Now Live


This week CAPS enterprise and Pathscale announced the launch of OpenHMPP – a non-profit association of academic, research, and industry partners committed to working with the HPC community to make HMPP directives a world-class open standard.

“Heterogeneous processor technology is here to last and porting legacy codes to GPU computing is a major challenge. Migrating existing applications requires new parallel programming interfaces that minimize code restructuration. Directives based approach, such as HMPP, has been proposed a few years ago to deal with GPGPU. This approach has been validated on many C and Fortran applications and allows achieving performance similar to native GPGPU programming such as CUDA or OpenCL.
