NVIDIA Acquires The Portland Group

NVIDIA has acquired The Portland Group, the HPC industry’s 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. We’ve worked closely with them for the past five years as we’ve pushed deeper into high performance computing with GPUs.

PGI and its exceptionally talented staff will continue to operate under the PGI flag آ– developing OpenACC, CUDA Fortran and CUDA x86 for multicore x86 and, of course, GPGPUs. And they will continue to serve their wide-range of customers آ– including chip makers, research labs and HPC computing centers.
