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 directives OpenACC lowers the bar for entry into heterogeneous computing since the developer can begin porting their codes to heterogeneous systems while maintaining a source code that still runs well on a homogeneous system.

    Thanks for sharing this. I do think (personally) that OpenACC will gain a lot of traction.
