Nov. 16 -- SC09 -- CAPS, a leader in development tools for parallel hybrid computing, is pleased to announce the release of a new HMPP CAL/IL code generator to accelerate applications using AMD graphics processors.
With this new back-end, CAPS broadens its portfolio of supported hardware accelerators allowing customers to address different hybrid systems with one single directive-based programming model.
While HMPP was already partially supporting AMD graphics products offering a portable interface to integrate hand written CAL/IL kernels in Fortran or C legacy applications, the new CAL/IL code generator makes HMPP fully automatic in generating AMD accelerated applications, reducing substantially development time.
"AMD is proud to work with technology partners, like CAPS, to deliver a robust development ecosystem for ATI Stream technology, designed to enable developers to take full advantage of the immense processing capabilities available in today's heterogeneous architectures," says Patricia Harrell, director of stream computing at AMD. "With the release of its CAL/IL back-end for the HMPP development platform, CAPS continues to strengthen the ecosystem for ATI Stream technology, by enabling developers to leverage both the CPU and the GPU in their system using familiar programming interfaces such as C and Fortran."
"We are pleased to add the support of AMD/ATI GPU within HMPP. This will allow customers to benefit from the performance of this processor. Together with the AMD stream computing software tools, HMPP brings a real added value by allowing developers to quickly leverage the tremendous power of AMD GPU processors for their applications, while preserving their software assets," declares Jean-Marc TALBOT, CAPS CEO.
The official release date is planned in December this year and CAPS will be demonstrating HMPP CAL/IL at Supercomputing, in Portland, Ore., Nov. 16-19, in booth number 1100.
About CAPS entreprise
CAPS entreprise fundamentally gives to software developers an easy access to manycore systems. Its flagship product HMPP (Heterogeneous Multicore Parallel Programming) indeed allows a single version of a given application to be developed, ported, maintained and deployed on several manycore systems like those integrating CPUs & GPUs. It unleashes the power of manycore architectures by providing an elegant and pragmatic solution to the porting of legacy software. CAPS Contact: Estelle Dulsou at email@example.com.

Large-scale, worldwide scientific initiatives rely on some cloud-based system to both coordinate efforts and manage computational efforts at peak times that cannot be contained within the combined in-house HPC resources. Last week at Google I/O, Brookhaven National Lab’s Sergey Panitkin discussed the role of the Google Compute Engine in providing computational support to ATLAS, a detector of high-energy particles at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC).
The Xeon Phi coprocessor might be the new kid on the high performance block, but out of all first-rate kickers of the Intel tires, the Texas Advanced Computing Center (TACC) got the first real jab with its new top ten Stampede system.We talk with the center's Karl Schultz about the challenges of programming for Phi--but more specifically, the optimization...

When it comes to cloud, long distances mean unacceptably high latencies. Researchers from the University of Bonn in Germany examined those latency issues of doing CFD modeling in the cloud by utilizing a common CFD and its utilization in HPC instance types including both CPU and GPU cores of Amazon EC2.
