Cray Compiler Environment

Cray has announced that its latest release of the Cray Compiler Environment (CCE) is available on the Cray CS300 line of cluster supercomputers, the CCE is a HPC-optimised compiler for highly parallel environments.

The CCE supports Cray LibSci. This service offers a library of linear algebra solvers that enhances user CPU and GPU application performance based on problem size. This has the potential to improve productivity for Fortran, C, and C++ programmers.

Cray has stated that it will continue to support multiple compilers on the Cray CS300 systems, including compilers from the GNU Compiler Collection, Intel, PathScale and PGI.
