STMICROELECTRONICS subsidiary The Portland Group says its products now support the upcoming microprocessors from AMD based on their Bulldozer architecture.
The Bulldozer core architecture uses a flexible floating point unit called the Flex FP which can simultaneously execute two 128-bit commands or one 128-bit and one 256-bit command.
The floating point unit is included in the upcoming 16-core processors codenamed “Interlagos” intended for high-performance servers.
Portland Group’s PGI compilers also now support Advanced Vector Instructions (AVX) for both AMD and Intel x64 CPUs, including AMD’s extended FMA4 instruction set.
The combination of AMD’s Flex FP architecture with AVX and FMA4 together with PGI compilers will enable customers to fully exploit the power of AMD “Bulldozer” based processors, claims the company.
Supercomputer maker Cray Inc., which includes PGI compilers with nearly all of its HPC systems worldwide, has indicated that some of its largest HPC customers will upgrade their existing systems to include 16-core “Interlagos” processors.
The Portland Group, a wholly-owned subsidiary of STMicroelectronics, supplies parallel Fortran, C, and C++ compilers and tools for workstations, servers, and clusters based on x64 processors from Intel and AMD, and GPUs accelerators from NVIDIA.
