OpenMP Announces Improvements for Multicore and Accelerators

CHAMPAIGN, Ill., Mar 27 — OpenMP, the de-facto standard for parallel programming on shared memory systems, continues to extend its reach beyond pure HPC to include embedded systems, multicore and real time systems. A new version is being developed that will include support for accelerators, error handling, thread affinity, tasking extensions and Fortran 2003. The OpenMP consortium welcomes feedback from all interested parties and will use this feedback to improve the next version of OpenMP.

AMD Opens Up Heterogeneous Computing

“…

HSA, which until recently was know as the Fusion architecture, is AMD’s platform design for integrating CPU and GPU cores onto the same chip. But HSA is more than AMD’s attempt to define an architecture for internal use, as was the case for Fusion. Rather HSA is an open specification that AMD wants the industry to adopt as the de facto platform for heterogenous computing…”

Intel is preparing a 1000-core processor

According to Timothy Mattson, scientific expert Intel, speaking at the conference Supercomputing Conference 2010 in New Orleans in the U.S., it is based on a scalable architecture 48-core processor and is based concept chip with 1000 cores working. Mattson said that on the scalability of the 1000 nuclear chips can match the entire datacenter in use today. Read more

1000 core processor ? This is not new because Scottish Scientists recently created 1000-Core Processor on a Single FPGA Chip (Read more). This gave me the feeling that supercomputing era is back. But this hardware must be very expensive because FPGA is never cheap. So, for any one who are looking for a powerful and cheap multi-core processor, why don’t consider GPUs. Nvidia is now has 448 core chip and ATI has GPU with up to 1000 cores. Although, there are limitations on writing programs running on GPU, using GPUs is big shot if we are short in budget.

Anyway, I hope that this Intel 1000-core processor will come soon.
