Translates for supporting video cards

NVIDIA has announced that a public beta release of the PGICUDA-enabled Fortran compiler is now available for download. The compiler was developed by NVIDIA and the Portland Group, and is billed as the first Fortran compiler that works withCUDA-enabled GPUs. The compiler translates the Fortran programming language into binary code that CUDA GPUs can interpret.

The Fortran language is described as useful due to its numeric and scientific computational strengths. The beta version of the compiler is now available at the Portland Group website; multiple platforms are supported, including Mac, Windows and Linux. Developers must have the CUDA Software Developers Kit, which is available at NVIDIA's CUDA website.
