PathScale aims to beat CUDA and OpenCL with new open standard

Posted on Thursday, April 29 2010 @ 04:16:02 CEST by

PathScale intends to beat both OpenCL and CUDA with a new open GPGPU standard that promises high efficiency and a programming model that is easier to develop for.
Speaking to THINQ, PathScale’s chief technology officer Christopher Bergström, explained that the creator of highly-optimised compilers hopes to develop "another open standard that will hopefully compete with OpenCL, and be just as high-performance, have an easier programming model and end up helping everybody."


"Currently Nvidia is still pushing their antiquated, dare I say crappy, CUDA programming model," says Bergström, "which is highly explicit and very expensive for people who write large bodies of code. The scientific community for specialised code has bitten the bullet and done it, but for the most part we’re not porting lines and lines of code to CUDA, and we’re definitely not porting it to OpenCL.
