- Description: HPL is a software package that solves a (random) dense linear system in double precision (64 bits) arithmetic on distributed-memory computers. It is freely available implementation of the High Performance Computing Linpack Benchmark.
- Version: 188.8.131.52
- Modules: open64/184.108.40.206
- Licence: Open source but discontinued
Open64 is also used in a number of research projects, such as the Unified Parallel C (UPC) and speculative multithreading work at various universities.
AMD has extended and productised Open64 with optimizations designed for x86 multi-core processor advancements and multi-threaded code development. AMD supports Open64 as a complementary compiler to GCC.
Note : Open64 is a discontinued, free, open source, optimizing compiler for the Itanium and x86-64 microprocessor architectures.
