The NAG Library for SMP and Multicore Released

By DE Editors

The new NAG Library for SMP Multicore from Numerical Algorithms Group is designed enable engineers to better use the processing power of multicore computer systems and migrate existing applications to multi processor architectures.

The NAG Library for SMP and Multicore Released

The NAG Library for SMP and Multicore contains more than 1,600 routines, including more than 100 that are new for the latest release, according to NAG.

“Most current processors are multicore, and can provide benefits when programmed with parallel techniques,” says David Cassell, NAG product marketing manager. “In fact, if you do not use routines tuned for multicore architectures applications are now likely to execute more slowly. The NAG library for SMP and Multicore also has been designed to make it easy to move those applications that currently call serial routines into the parallel world, by the use of common calls and common documentation. This means users can quickly gain the benefits of parallel performance.”
