Intel & HP To Work On Faster Itanium Compiler

In an effort that could boost the prospects for Intel’s high-end Itanium processor, Intel and HP are funding an effort to develop improved compilers capable of generating faster-running code for the chip. The two companies are working under the umbrella of the Gelato Federation, a consortium of supercomputer centers and research organizations intent on using open-source software to field large clusters of 64-bit systems built around Itanium. Specifically, work will proceed on improving two software tools: the OpenImpact compiler and the Free Software Foundation’s more general GNU compiler collection.
