NVIDIA acquires PGI

NVIDIANVIDIA has made further inroads into high performance computing (HPC) with the acquisition of The Portland Group (PGI), a leading 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. Following the acquisition, it will continue to operate under the PGI name and develop OpenACC, CUDA Fortran and CUDA x86 for multicore x86, and GPGPUs. PGI will also continue to serve its customers, including chip makers, research labs and HPC computing centres.
