  • OpenACC C++ support advances the cause of GPU-based supercomputers

    Just a few months after first releasing its PGI 2014 set of compilers and tools, Nvidia subsidiary The Portland Group (PGI) has expanded OpenACC C++ support in the high-performance computing compile suite, and put older versions of Windows on the EOL list.

    The PGI 2014 release back in February added support for the latest version of the OpenACC acceleration offload language to the platform, as well as support for Nvidia's Tesla and AMD's Radeon GPUs and APUs.

    The new 14.4 release is now available for Linux (workstation, server and a cluster development kit), Windows (workstation and server, and a Visual Fortran version), and a workstation version for OSX.

    The full list of features in PGI 2014 14.4 is here, but high points include new CUDA 5.5 and CUDA 6 features, GPU-side debug in OpenACC under Allinea DDT, better PGI multi-core performance on Sandy Bridge, and integrated prebuilt versions of NetCDF and HDF5.

    Nvidia got into the compiler business in 2013 with the acquisition of The Portland Group, in recognition of the growth of GPU-based supercomputers.

    Nvidia and PGI were two of the original partners in setting up OpenACC, which El Reg then noted is “an open standard for adding directive hints to compilers to help them parallelize applications for CPUs, GPUs, and any other kind of parallel execution engine.”

    PGI 2014 is a big chunk of this strategy, since it aims to decouple the accelerator programming from specific hardware, instead letting HPC users work with accelerators on a more generic level and skip device-specific tuning.

    Gee... imagine that...

    Sorry man, you responded with a quote from 20-yrs ago,
    and I compared it with a modern view...

    Thanks for the history... it's always interesting !!!!

    "every function but graphics becomes commodity in the world of semiconductors "

    every unit on Tegra will be in house NVidia IP... it's more than just the GPU...
    And if the CPU didn't matter, NVidia wouldn't have pursued PD...
    so everything on Tegra that differentiates it is important...

    you better hope not...
    BAD NEWS for INTC if it becomes the sole supplier of x86...

    Ashraf's latest article

    INtel could get more $$ per wafer, and higher margins, than TSMC...
    It's also a stagnate view... for the industry $s will only grow as the yrs go by...
    So many new devices & mkts gonna happen...
    INtel could make bundles of $$ without a penny of R&D $$...

    What just goes by Ashraf, is the coming explosion of ARM64 and the waning of x86 influence,
    INtel must open their fabs...
    I will double my INTC position the day INtel opens its fabs... major $$

    Oh Yeah, every new customer INtel takes on will have an ARM CPU core ... :)

  • getanid61 by getanid61 May 12, 2014 11:07 AM Flag

    In your recent article about why the stock dropped, you got it right with the lower margin,
    but you missed the raised tax rate to 20%

    Another view for you about the threat of INtel. So far, it's been all about INtel swallowing the GPU.
    Have you noticed that the GPU can be half the Haswell die.
    NVidia's advantage will be their GPUs will swallow the CPU... with the very small area of PD & beyond.
    Quick assumption is PD is twice the area of an A15...

    As long as the GPU is larger than the CPU... tough pill for INtel to swallow that more die area would
    be given to the GPU than the CPU.. :)

    "64 bit mattered less last year because of the general readiness of what it took to benefit. There is an optimum context for everything."

    The qualcomm rep said the similar... was silenced after that if you recall..

    But as I keep telling you, though I'm blasted for saying it, PD will change the company.
    Then you'll all act as if I never said it...

  • getanid61 getanid61 May 11, 2014 3:48 PM Flag

    Geez Max... what did I do ??
    Please tell anything I've said that's incorrect...

  • getanid61 getanid61 May 11, 2014 3:42 PM Flag

    ibexx, didn't think before this alias was yours, but since you want to hide...
    nice attempt at spin... you can do better...

    You're only focused on me for I don't fit your agenda...

    Good Luck... but I'll keep you honest...

    "with Kepler all chips have been rearchitected and Jonah is running all design groups"

    Truly, I hope Jonah opens a can of whoop #$%$... the Tegra team needs something to organize it...
    I think they had a great roadmap... but something internal to NVidia has caused this group to fail
    in their delivery...

    I'm an NVDA long, but folks here attack me for any honesty about the Tegra team...
    Yrs of promises... yrs of not just missing the game, but missing the whole season...
    I say again it's up to PD and with a complete restart of Tegra...
    PD will allow Tegra to move into the lucrative mkts...

  • getanid61 getanid61 May 11, 2014 11:33 AM Flag

    ibexx... you get more looney each post..

    :"Good find someone of YOUR LEVEL to pick a fight with."

    You picked the fight...

    "I am too busy"

    More lies & fantasy...

  • getanid61 getanid61 May 11, 2014 11:05 AM Flag

    Ibexx... just amazing... after calling you out on lies & fantasy...
    you double down to save face...
    Guess living in the land of make believe is more palatable then reality...
    Enjoy your reality...

  • getanid61 getanid61 May 11, 2014 10:08 AM Flag


    why do you play these stupid games ?? You know there's NO truth to your words...
    You so invested in posting on this board that you've lost touch when reality ends
    and fantasy begins...

    "GRID/Telsa and Android gaming all have monstrous potential. Yet those appear to have no value to these clowns."

    Yes, and I still think it's PD that's the missing key to it all.

    "You seem to be in whosuns camp where it's only about tegra. "

    Whosunw is here to bash NVDA, and that's why that poster sticks exclusively to Tegra.
    Honestly, Tegra was supposed to be profitable by now, and it's still a money loser.
    Or did I miss something...

    "You and I both know you can only reasonably see out about ~24 months in high technology, so they ought to be given the benefit of a change of plans particularly when nearly the entire mobile mgmt team was flushed.:"

    Fine, give them the benefit.... but Tegra still isn't making any money.
    Tegra slipped schedule by yrs...
    If it is profitable now, then Jensen moved around Tegra R&D expense into other groups.

    I'll say it again, it's up to PD and to move Tegra into lucrative mkts.
    THere's NO money in mobile... unless you sell the device or license.

    Stark was just an example to answer your question. I didn't make up the name or put it in/remove from the roadmap.

    I think NVidia is a top-notch company, but the obvious is the Tegra team ain't the GPU team...

  • getanid61 getanid61 May 10, 2014 3:08 PM Flag


    "when do companies like NVDA turn the corner?"

    When analysts have more faith. They've been let down by the Tegra teams.
    Not just a little late, but yrs late in delivery.
    Constant advertisement of projects that just disappear(ie, Tegra Stark) poof gone.

    Did NVidia raise any margins, or guide a slight decrease.
    Also, they are now in a 20% tax bracket....

    I've always maintained NVidia's future is tied to the success of PD & beyond.
    It's Not just the CPU, but it will open new markets that 32-bit is irrelevant in.
    PD & beyond will also open doors in HPC, servers, labtops, etc...
    The future is going ARM64 and NVidia will grow with it...

    Since servers are your thing, how much does the size of the L3 cache affect the benchmarks ??
    Also, the fabric connecting it all ??

    Thanks in advance

    semi punk,

    "I think he revealed how low is IQ really is"

    Strained Silicon, HighKMG, and nothing about TSVs beyond what google returns...
    C'mon,... you threw those out there to impress... didn't turn out like you hoped...:)

    "TSV will be a BIG dea... strictly a manufacturing/cost issue "

    No kidding... yet you don't understand a word beyond a google search...
    Even at a surface level it's obvious your lack of background to this industry...

    PUNK !!!!

    semi punk,

    Pathetic response at misdirection, but we'll keep you honest.
    So we established you don't have a clue about your own buzzwords
    Tell us all anything you understand about Strained Silicon and HighKMG,
    even about TSV that's beyond a google search.

    "Intel will develop TSV into a productionworthy process and than hand it over to NVDA"

    Back it up PUNK !!!!
    Again, we will expose your ignorance to the industry !!
