My research group in Hungary is investigating new tools for high performance computing. So I came across Rapidmind, and its aquisition by Intel. As far as I know, Rapidmind aimed at transparent development tools for multiple HPC hardware, like clusters, GPU, etc. I am curious, which type of hardware will Intel Ct technology support? I am aware of support for multi-threaded multi-core Intel CPUs. Will there be support for other type systems, like (eg. nvidia or ati) GPU-s? Or for cluster machines? Or even special hardware like FPGA? I wonder, if I develop code with Intel Ct, will I be able to compile it to these platforms?
I am sorry, if this is not the adequate place to ask this question, but I did not find any clear information on this.
At a slightly higher level (at least to the eye of those who use OpenMP), influential members of the OpenMP community have announced intention to expand the standard so as to cover GPGPUs and extend the use of hybrid OpenMP/MPI. So it will be interesting to see how the tools develop.
