Argonne and Oak Ridge Award Codeplay Software to Strengthen SYCL Support

Argonne National Laboratory (Argonne) in collaboration with Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL), has awarded Codeplay a contract implementing the oneAPI DPC++ compiler, an implementation of the SYCL open standard software, to support AMD GPU-based high-performance compute (HPC) supercomputers. The Argonne Leadership Computing Facility (ALCF) is deploying an exascale supercomputer, Aurora, based on Intel GPUs with […]

NERSC, ALCF, Codeplay Partner on SYCL GPU Compiler

The National Energy Research Scientific Computing Center (NERSC) at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (LBNL) and Argonne Leadership Computing Facility (ALCF) are working with Codeplay Software to enhance the LLVM SYCL GPU compiler capabilities for Nvidia A100 GPUs. The collaboration is designed to help NERSC and ALCF users, along with the HPC community in general, produce […]

Khronos Releases SYCL 2020 Specification — Closer Alignment with ISO C++

Today, The Khronos Group, an open consortium of companies creating advanced interoperability standards, announces the ratification and public release of the SYCL 2020 final specification—the open standard for single source C++ parallel programming. A milestone encompassing years of specification development, SYCL 2020 builds on the functionality of SYCL 1.2.1 to provide improved programmability, smaller code size […]

oneAPI DPC++ in SYCL 2020 Final Spec

oneAPI Data Parallel C++ (DPC++) features are included in the SYCL 2020 final specification, released today by The Khronos Group, an open consortium of industry-leading companies creating advanced interoperability standards. Since its launch in 2019, DPC++ has progressed significantly, building cross-architecture and cross-vendor support from the oneAPI Centers of Excellence and now successfully upstreaming features to […]

New, Open DPC++ Extensions Complement SYCL and C++

In this guest article, our friends at Intel discuss how accelerated computing has diversified over the past several years given advances in CPU, GPU, FPGA, and AI technologies. This innovation drives the need for an open and cross-platform language that allows developers to realize the potential of new hardware, minimizes development cost and complexity, and maximizes reuse of their software investments.

Codeplay SYCL 1.2.1 Solution offers an Open Alternative to CUDA

Today Codeplay announced the world’s first fully-conformant SYCL 1.2.1 Solution. “As a non-proprietary alternative to the incumbent CUDA, SYCL is an open standard developed by the Khronos Group that enables developers to write code for heterogeneous systems using standard C++. Developers are looking at how they can accelerate their applications without having to write optimized processor specific code. SYCL is the industry standard for C++ acceleration, giving developers a platform to write high-performance code in standard C++, unlocking the performance of accelerators and specialized processors from companies such as AMD, Intel, Renesas and Arm.”
