NVIDIA and PGI Announce CUDA-x86

NVIDIA announced this morning that they have entered a partnership with The Portland Group and that the company is bringing the CUDA parallel computing framework for both 64- and 32-bit x86 architectures. This means that CUDA-x86 will compile CUDA applications in order for them to work with x86 processors. This is great news for NVIDIA as their CUDA applications will now run in theory run on "any computer, or any server in the world." There will be some exceptions, but this is good news.
