    Phoronix: AMD Publishes Open-Source "GPUFORT" As Newest Effort To Help Transition Away From CUDA

    I've just been informed by AMD that they have now made their code public to a new project called GPUFORT. This new GPUFORT project will live under the Radeon Open eCosystem (ROCm) umbrella and is their latest endeavor in helping developers with large CUDA code-bases transition away from NVIDIA's closed ecosystem...

    What's Fortran used for in HPC contexts these days? Scientific calculations? Simulations?

        So nothing like ZLUDA :<

        A CUDA to HSA compiler would be nice...

          Yes and yes.

            As for AMD the best way to get people to use your hardware is to write solid drivers for them. Ain't no one convertin nutin till the drivers works right.

              Looks like someone is living under a rock.

                Yep, scientists speak Fortran... so anything written by a scientist is likely to be in Fortran. Fortran also used to have a presence in government software use before ADA picked up on a lot of that around the mid 80s. Basically if you needed to do math, Fortran, if you need to access records etc... COBOL.

                  He's probably talking about compute support, not gaming.
                  And for compute, AMD has garbage to no compute support at all.
                  Just look on how people are begging them to add RDNA support for ROCm and they don't.

                    Now, now. Those cards mine Eth fulfill their purpose just fine without ROCm, don't you know.
