As for what this release pertains, speedups like 2x, 2.5x etc indicates to me that this is a combined cpu+gpu (gpgpu) compiler
I tend to agree. The compiler big boys might skip a percent for maintainability, but will hardly leave factors of two or three hanging loose. And while there can always be delays when converting from proprietary to open-source licenses, what over-hyped developer-oriented event in Bellevue next week could possibly give a marketing type pause to consider the timing of this sort of developer-oriented release?
I think, after some research on Internet, that the company in question could be pathscale, which developps compilers. They announced one year ago that they were developping a new gggpu compiler, conccurrent of cuda and opencl, that they intend to make open source . See these links :
