PGI C/C++ Workstation vs. PGI Accelerator C/C++ Workstation

Hi,

I wonder what is the difference between PGI C/C++ Workstation and PGI Accelerator C/C++ Workstation? For OpenACC C/C++ GPU Programming, does it make a difference to use either of them?

Best Regards,

About PGI Accelerator Products
PGI products are offered either with (x64+accelerator) or without (x64)support for GPU accelerators. x64+accelerator products include applicable support for OpenACC directives, CUDA Fortran, CUDA-x86 and other accelerator oriented technologies and capabilities.



For OpenACC C/C++ GPU Programming, does it make a difference to use either of them?

Yes. In order to use OpenACC, you’ll need an accelerator license. Note that the compilers are the same between the two, it’s just that the accelerator license enables more features.
