About new NVIDIA HPC SDK

Post by Enea2301 » Wed Nov 18, 2020 12:03 pm

Hi! I'm now re-compiling WRF on a new SO and drive, and I've noticed that PGI compilers no longer "exists" (no new versions).

In it's place, NVIDIA HPC SDK has been launched. I wonder if WRF plans to support it or even if it is usable right now as if it was PGI.
(Guess I should ask the same for MPAS as I plan to compile it for GPU, but that should go on its place).
Thanks!!

Hi,
I'm not sure if there are plans to include this in the upcoming release. I'll contact our software engineer to get their input on this and will get back to you.

Ok, thank you!

Let's hope it comes soon anyway, if not in this release, in some future one. These new compilers are promising.

Thank you for the information. I have passed this on to the administrators on our NCAR supercomputer platform. Once we have a machine where we may test the nvfortran and nvc compilers, we can include the SDK compiler/tools in the standard WRF build options.
