This article reports on the decision of PathScale, a developer of innovative software and hardware solutions to accelerate the performance and efficiency of Linux clusters based in Mountain View, California, to optimize its industry-leading EKOPath(TM) Compiler Suite and InfiniPath(TM) low-latency interconnect as of June 1, 2005. The decision aims to provide enhanced support for the new Dual-Core AMD Opteron(TM) processors. AMD's revolutionary Direct Connect Architecture with two cores on the same die along with memory and HyperTransport(TM) technology I/O, enables superior performance per dollar and performance per watt for 32- and 64-bit x86 applications. In close collaboration with AMD's engineers, PathScale has optimized version 2.1 of the EKOPath Compiler Suite specifically for Dual-Core AMD Opteron processors. These improvements include code generator performance tuning for OpenMP applications and significantly improved compilation times, enabling AMD and its system partners to produce unprecedented performance benchmark results on dual-core systems, such as the recent SPEC benchmarks submitted by HP and AMD using PathScale compilers exclusively to optimize their Linux results.
