NVIDIA Buys Portland Group

NVIDIA has acquired The Portland Group (PGI), an HPC independent supplier of compilers and tools.

Founded in 1989, PGI has a long history of innovation in HPC compiler technology for Intel, IBM, Linux, OpenMP, GPGPU and ARM. Nvidia has worked with them for the past five years as its engineers pushed deeper into high performance computing with GPUs.

PGI and its staff will continue to operate under the PGI flag ? developing OpenACC, CUDA Fortran and CUDA x86 for multicore x86 and, of course, GPGPUs. And they will continue to serve their wide-range of customers ? including chip makers, research labs and HPC computing centers.

"Bringing our teams together further cements our strong, established technical partnership in creating developer tools for the accelerated computing revolution. It also strengthens the OpenACC initiative to create an easy on-ramp to parallel computing by joining the world?s top independent provider of OpenACC compilers with the world?s best GPU designers," Nvidia said.

Terms of the deal were not disclosed
