Not surprisingly, well-established programming models have attracted much attention: * message passing interface (MPI) * directive-based programming, like OpenMP and OpenACC * common libraries providing fast Fourier transform (FFT) and basic linear algebra subprograms (BLAS) functionality * language platforms based on a strong-scaling execution model (CUDA and OpenCL) The current packaging of GPU and MIC massively-parallel chips as external PCIe devices complicates each of these programming models.
