AMDBLIS is a portable, open-source software framework for instantiating high-performance Basic Linear Algebra Subprograms (BLAS), such as dense linear algebra libraries. The framework was designed to isolate essential kernels of computation that, when optimized, immediately enable optimized implementations of most of the commonly used and computationally-intensive operations.
NVHPC, or NVIDIA HPC SDK, C, C++, and Fortran compilers support GPU acceleration of HPC modeling and simulation applications with standard C++ and Fortran, OpenACC® directives, and CUDA®. GPU-accelerated math libraries maximize performance on common HPC algorithms, and optimized communications libraries enable standards-based multi-GPU and scalable systems programming.
The AMD Optimizing C/C++ and Fortran Compilers (“AOCC”) are a set of production compilers optimized for software performance when running on AMD host processors using the AMD “Zen” core architecture. Supported processor families are AMD EPYC™, AMD Ryzen™, and AMD Ryzen™ Threadripper™ processors. The AOCC compiler environment simplifies and accelerates development and tuning for x86 applications built with C, C++, and Fortran languages.

The NVIDIA Collective Communication Library (NCCL) implements multi-GPU and multi-node communication primitives optimized for NVIDIA GPUs and Networking. NCCL provides routines such as all-gather, all-reduce, broadcast, reduce, reduce-scatter as well as point-to-point send and receive that are optimized to achieve high bandwidth and low latency over PCIe and NVLink high-speed interconnects within a node and over NVIDIA Mellanox Network across nodes.
C, C++ and Fortran are supported on the Ascend cluster. Intel, oneAPI, GNU, nvhpc, and aocc compiler suites are available. The Intel development tool chain is loaded by default. Compiler commands and recommended options for serial programs are listed in the table below. See also our compilation guide.
This page includes a summary of differences to keep in mind when migrating jobs from other clusters to Ascend.
oneAPI is an open, cross-industry, standards-based, unified, multiarchitecture, multi-vendor programming model that delivers a common developer experience across accelerator architectures – for faster application performance, more productivity, and greater innovation. The oneAPI initiative encourages collaboration on the oneAPI specification and compatible oneAPI implementations across the ecosystem.
