Intel MIC Run-Time Offload Library Close To Entering GCC
Intel's MIC run-time offload library will likely be added to the GNU Compiler Collection in the very near future.
This month the GCC steering committee approved adding Intel's offload library to GCC that provides run-time support for their MIC architecture, which is what makes up their high-end "Xeon Phi" hardware.
To address the concerns mentioned in the earlier article, the library within GCC is being called liboffloadmic. A patch was proposed today for adding the library to GCC and will likely be merged soon, making it one of the latest prominent features to next year's release of GCC 4.10.
