Announcing Absoft Pro Fortran 2021
Just released for Windows, macOS, and Linux, Absoft Pro Fortran 2021 includes upgrades that improve performance and enhance the user experience on all platforms. For macOS, Pro Fortran 2021 fully supports the newly released macOS Big Sur (11.0). All three versions include new parallel versions of the popular LAPACK and BLAS subroutine libraries.
Customers upgrading to Pro Fortran 2021 from earlier releases are also eligible for another 12 months of technical support at no extra charge.
Parallel LAPACK and BLAS subroutine libraries
Absoft Pro Fortran 2021 includes parallel versions of the LAPACK and BLAS subroutine libraries. Based on the 3.9.0 version of LAPACK, these new packages can dramatically improve performance on multi-core processors. The graphs below show the relative multi-thread versus single-thread performance for selected double-precision LAPACK routines on six and eight processors.
The parallel LAPACK and BLAS libraries are included as part of the standard package on all Absoft Pro Fortran platforms.
