I have good news to share today about our mission to provide developers with the world’s best accelerated computing platform.

NVIDIA has acquired The Portland Group (PGI), the HPC industry’s leading independent supplier of compilers and tools.

Founded in 1989, PGI has a long history of innovation in HPC compiler technology for Intel, IBM, Linux, OpenMP, GPGPU and ARM. We’ve worked closely with them for the past five years as we’ve pushed deeper into high performance computing with GPUs.

PGI and its exceptionally talented staff will continue to operate under the PGI flag – developing OpenACC, CUDA Fortran and CUDA x86 for multicore x86 and, of course, GPGPUs. And they will continue to serve their wide-range of customers – including chip makers, research labs and HPC computing centers.

Bringing our teams together further cements our strong, established technical partnership in creating developer tools for the accelerated computing revolution. It also strengthens the OpenACC initiative to create an easy on-ramp to parallel computing by joining the world’s top independent provider of OpenACC compilers with the world’s best GPU designers.

Behind every great processor technology stands a great compiler team. Ours just got bigger. And better.

    Step 1) Make OpenACC freely available in the CUDA toolkit :-)

  • ovidio_nason

    Step 2) Make all PGI compilers free available (if not free software, at least freeware as Intel and Oracle Studio for Linux)

    Doug & Ian seem to be shining, whereas Jeff looks like the one who’s got to pay for the drinks ))) Great achievement Nvidia, accept our best wishes…
