    Phoronix: The GCC 10 Compiler Lands OpenMP / OpenACC Offloading To AMD Radeon GPUs

    A few days ago I wrote about the OpenMP / OpenACC offloading patches for Radeon "GCN" GPUs being posted and seeking inclusion in the GCC 10 compiler that will be released in a few months. Those patches were successfully merged meaning this next annual update to the GNU Compiler Collection will feature initial OpenMP/OpenACC code offloading support to supported AMD GPU targets...

    I'm skeptical this is really the way to go, for GPU-compute acceleration, but I'll try to keep an open mind. At least, it should be an easy way to get some wins.

    Can anyone suggest some good benchmarks - particularly of OpenACC?

    I know OpenBLAS has optional OpenMP support, so any benchmarks based on it should potentially benefit.
