Simplest Way to Portable Computing
Ideal for Accelerating Legacy Codes with GPUs
OpenACC directives are the simple and portable way to accelerate your scientific code. With OpenACC, you simply insert compiler hints into your Fortran or C code and the compiler will automatically map compute-intensive portions of your code to the GPU for higher performance.
Now available from industry leaders, Cray, CAPS, and The Portland Group (PGI), OpenACC compilers are:
- Open: Future-proof your codes with this open standard
- Simple: Easy, high-level, compiler driven approach to parallel computing
- Portable: Ideal for accelerating legacy Fortran or C codes
Here's an example of how easy a single directive hint can accelerate the calculation of pi. With GPU directives, you can get started and see results in the same afternoon.

"The PGI compiler is now showing us just how powerful it is. On the software we are writing, it's at least 60 times faster on the NVIDIA card. We are very pleased and excited about the future uses. It's like owning a personal supercomputer."

"I have written micromagnetic codes (written in Fortran 90) to study the properties of two and three dimensional magnetic systems. The directives approach enabled me to port my existing code with ease to perform my computations on the GPU which resulted in a significant speedup (more than 20 times) of the computation."
