NVIDIA Porting CUDA to x86

Posted by at 2:44 pm on September 21, 2010

NVIDIA chief Jen-Hsun Huang today at its GPU Technology Conference said his company would bring its CUDA general-purpose computing language directly to x86 chips. The approach developed with the Portland Group will let systems without NVIDIA cards handle the code. It will work best with multi-core processors and is being aim at the server market..

Both Mac OS X and Windows have native CUDA support, but a timetable  hasn’t beenn announced  for when CUDA will be ready to make the switch or which platforms   will be supported

The move is potentially a hedge against universal standards such as Microsoft’s DirectCompute and OpenCL.
