NVIDIA Opens up CUDA Platform by Releasing Compiler Source Code

NVIDIA announces that it will provide the source code for the new NVIDIA CUDA LLVM-based compiler to academic researchers and software-tool vendors.

LLVM is a widely-used open source compiler infrastructure with a modular design that makes it easy to add support for new programming languages and processor architectures. It is used for a range of programming requirements by many leading companies, including Adobe, Apple, Cray, Electronic Arts, and others.

The new LLVM-based CUDA compiler, which is enhanced with architecture support for NVIDIA's parallel GPUs, is included in the latest release of the CUDA Toolkit (v4.1), now available to the public.
