PGHPF Workstation

by The Portland Group

Fortran-only package with parallelizing F77, F90 and HPF compilers. Includes the OpenMP parallel debugger/profiler.

Description | More information | Demos | Pricing | Sectors | Platforms

F77, F95 and HPF for 32-bit and 64-bit AMD64 and IA32 processor-based systems.

PGHPF« Workstation is PGI's Fortran-only compiler bundle. PGHPF Workstation includes a single-user node-locked license for all of the PGI Fortran compilers, for PGDBG« OpenMP Linux graphical debugger (not currently available on Microsoft* Windows*) and for PGPROF« graphical OpenMP Linux performance profiler (command-level only on Windows).

If you develop or maintain scientific and technical applications, chances are you have a big investment in Fortran. After four decades, it's still the cornerstone of technical computing. The PGHPF« Workstation Fortran compilers deliver outstanding performance on 32-bit and 64-bit AMD64 and IA32 processor-based workstations and servers, and enable simple portable parallel programming for both shared-memory and clustered computing systems. Whether you have legacy FORTRAN 77 that relies on Cray, DEC, or IBM extensions, or are writing modern parallel codes in OpenMP Fortran 95 or High Performance Fortran (HPF), PGHPF Workstation has all the features you need.

PGHPF Workstation is highly optimized for Intel Pentium II/III/4, Intel Xeon/Xeon-64 and AMD Athlon/AthlonXP/Opteron processor-based workstations and servers running 32-bit or 64-bit Linux or 32-bit Microsoft* Windows* (NT/2000/XP). You'll have the option of parallelizing your applications automatically, or by using explicit HPF or OpenMP directives. PGI's outstanding performance allows you to build high performance applications for single, dual, or quad-processor workstations which can then run unchanged on workstation clusters, shared-memory servers, or high-end distributed-memory or NUMA supercomputers.

The PGHPF Workstation package includes the PGF90? Fortran 95 compiler, the PGF77« FORTRAN 77 compiler, and the PGHPF High Performance Fortran compiler. PGF90 and PGF77 support automatic parallelization for SMP workstations using a simple compiler switch, and full native support for OpenMP directive-based SMP parallel programming. Many vendors support parallelization using simple add-on pre-processing technology, but PGHPF Workstation offers the only parallel compilers, debugger and profiler available with parallel distributed-memory and parallel shared-memory support integrated into the compilers and tools. The end result is quicker development, higher performance and much higher reliability for the programmer. There are also no parallel runtime fees of any kind -- the executables produced by the PGHPF Workstation compilers can be executed on any compatible system regardless of whether PGHPF Workstation is installed.
