The latest NVIDIA HPC SDK update expands portability and now supports the Arm-based AWS Graviton3 processor. In this post, you learn how to enable Scalable Vector Extension (SVE) auto-vectorization with the NVIDIA compilers to maximize the performance of HPC applications running on the AWS Graviton3 CPU.

The NVIDIA HPC SDK includes the proven compilers, libraries, and software tools essential to maximizing developer productivity and building HPC applications for GPUs, CPUs, or the cloud.

NVIDIA HPC compilers enable cross-platform C, C++, and Fortran programming for NVIDIA GPUs and multicore Arm, OpenPOWER, or x86-64 CPUs. These are ideal for HPC modeling and simulation applications written in C, C++, or Fortran with OpenMP, OpenACC, and CUDA. 

For example, SPEC CPU® 2017 benchmark scores are estimated to increase by 17% on the AWS Graviton 3 when compiled with the NVIDIA HPC compilers vs. GCC 12.1.
