GPU Technology Conference continues to make news. This time NVIDIA announced its plans on co-design of CUDA-x86 compiler together with PGI.
It will be possible for CPU to complete CUDA tasks. According to NVIDIA, the maximum CUDA benefit can be reached only by using NVIDIA GPU. In case someone can’t afford NVIDIA solutions, he can use CPU computing power for CUDA tasks. Later it was confirmed that CUDA-x86 won’t be free. It will appear on market as a commercial product under PGI.
