SGI to resell PGI high-performance compilers and development tools
The Portland Group (PGI), a wholly-owned subsidiary of STMicroelectronics, has announced a new reseller agreement with Silicon Graphics (SGI). Under the agreement, SGI will resell PGI Fortran C and C++ compilers and development tools with SGI's line of servers based on Intel processors and Nvidia GPU accelerators.
PGI compilers and tools support the latest 64-bit processors from Intel and Nvidia Tesla GPU accelerators, including Tesla GPUs based on the next-generation Nvidia Kepler architecture. They are used by scientists and engineers to create and run high-performance computing applications for complex modelling and simulations in weather forecasting, geophysical processing, aerodynamic simulation, structural analysis, automotive crash-testing, computational chemistry, and related fields.
