Application Details

  • 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:
  • Modules: open64/
  • Licence: Open source but discontinued

Usage Examples

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.
