CAPS enterprise, the many-core programming company, is announced support for Intel MIC in its directive-based HMPP compiler. CAPS will add a new back-end to its HMPP directive-based compiler that will allow developers to unleash the performance of the Intel Many Integrated Core (MIC) architecture. First experimentations with scientific applications have shown very promising performance results.
Pioneer in the directive-based approach with its HMPP™ hybrid compiler, CAPS has been delivering parallel programming software tools, solutions and expertise for more than 10 years and helps organizations to adapt the way their applications are developed in order to benefit from the performance of multi-core and many core architectures.
“We are really excited that MIC is coming on the market”, says François Bodin – CAPS CTO, “and we are happy to make MIC easily accessible by our customers through HMPP. We are also continuing work in the OpenMP standards committee, with Intel and many others, for OpenMP offload extensions that will offer a standard to fully support Intel MIC as well as other devices.”
“CAPS brings expertise and products that will be valued by software developers using the Intel Many Integrated Core architecture,” said James Reinders, Director, Intel. “We are pleased to work with CAPS and see our customers have the opportunity to enjoy CAPS on Intel MIC co-processors as they already do with Intel processors.”
10 years’ experience in Multi and Many-Core code porting have enabled CAPS to define a proven porting methodology based on HMPP programming model and completed by a set of tools, guiding the user through the whole application’s development lifecycle.
The alliance of this methodology and state-of-the-art product ecosystem (programming, debugging, profiling tools and libraries) constitutes the added-value of the DevDeck Offer: an all-in-one solution for hybrid application parallelization.
