This article reports on the launch of the version 5.2 of PGI Workstation from the Portland Group in Portland, Oregon. PGI Workstation is a suite of Fortran, C, and C++ compilers and development tools for scientists and engineers. The PGI compilers and tools are widely used on Linux workstations, servers, and clusters based on AMD64 and IA32 processors to build high-performance computing applications for complex modeling and simulations in automotive crash testing, structural analysis, weather forecasting, geophysical processing, aerodynamic simulation, computational chemistry, and related fields. Version 5.2 includes full support for all Fortran 95 extensions in PGF90, full native support for OpenMP parallel programming extensions in Fortran, C, and C++, full support for the X86-64 application binary interface medium-memory model allowing application data sets and data objects larger than 2 gigabytes, native integrated scalar and vector SSE/SSE2 code generation and a bundled version of the ACML 2.0 library of highly optimized numeric functions for mathematical, engineering, scientific, and financial applications. PGI Workstation 5.2 also includes many major enhancements to The Portland Group's parallel application development tools.
