latest ifort but not latest openmp, perhaps?


Hi, I thought that ifort v17 would support OMP 4/4.5 including offloading to GPU. I can see this is heterogeneous for the binaries (Intel CPU & NVIDIA GPU) but is there no way forward on this? (I thought gfortran supported offloading to GPUs but the version I have installs fails the "target" directive

Ifort supports openmp offload only for Mic knc processor, requiring the optional mpss installation.

Gfortran supports offload in host emulation
