Nvidia open sources CUDA compiler

Written by Nick Farell



GPUs get general purpose parallel computing


Nvidia has announced it will release the source code for its latest CUDA compiler, which allows programs to use Nvidia GPUs for general purpose parallel computing.

The move will mean that more people will be able to play with Nvidia GPUs to create bigger parallel computing projects. The new version is based on LLVM, a popular open source compiler infrastructure that is language-agnostic, so releasing the source will allow developers to extend CUDA support to other programming languages beyond C and C++, and other processors such as AMD GPUs and x86 CPUs.

Nvidia has said that qualified academic researchers and developers can get early access to the CUDA source code by registering with them.
