Nvidia contributes CUDA compiler to LLVM. Nice move, but I still like openCL better.

SAN FRANCISCO—Nvidia Corp. said Wednesday (May 9) that LLVM, a popular open source compiler, now supports Nvida GPUs. Nvidia (Santa Clara, Calif.) said it worked with LLVM developers to provide its CUDA compiler source code changes to the LLVM core and parallel thread execution backend. Programmers can now develop applications for GPU accelerators using a broader selection of programming languages, Nvidia said. Nvidia announced late last year it would provide the source code for its CUDA low-level virtual machine (LLVM)-based compiler to academic researchers and software-tool vendors , a move the chip firm said would more easily add GPU support for more programming languages and support CUDA applications on alternative processor architectures. LLVM is a widely used open source compiler infrastructure with a modular design said to make it easy to add support for programming...
