Cavium Joins the OpenMP Effort for ThunderX2 Processor

Today the OpenMP ARB organization announced that Cavium has joined as a new member.

Cavium’s membership in the OpenMP ARB further highlights our strong belief in industry’s demand for parallel computing and the significance of the ARM Architecture,” said Avinash Sodani, Distinguished Engineer at Cavium. “Cavium’s strong product portfolio includes ThunderX2, a compelling server-class, multi-core ARMv8 CPU suited for the most demanding compute workloads. We look forward to working with other OpenMP members in furthering OpenMP standards to meet the challenges of the Exascale era.”

Cavium’s second generation ThunderX2 product family provides the best in class 64-bit ARMv8 Data Center & Cloud Processors, offering unprecedented level of integration and industry leading SoC performance. With high performance custom fully out-of-order (OOO) cores, single and dual socket configurations, very high memory bandwidth, large memory capacity, integrated hardware accelerators, fully virtualized core and feature rich I/O’s.

The OpenMP ARB has a mission to standardize directive-based multi-language high-level parallelism that is performant, productive and portable. Jointly defined by a group of major computer hardware and software vendors, the OpenMP API is a portable, scalable model that gives parallel programmers a simple and flexible interface for developing parallel applications for platforms ranging from embedded systems and accelerator devices to multicore systems and shared-memory systems.

“We are pleased that Cavium, Inc. has joined the OpenMP ARB and will help strengthen OpenMP support in the ARM software ecosystem,” says Michael Klemm, CEO of the OpenMP ARB.
