    Phoronix: Intel Ships Open-Source OpenMP Runtime For LLVM

    While LLVM's Clang C/C++ compiler has made amazing progress in recent times, one of the features it's sorely been missing has been OpenMP support to allow it to better compete with GCC in many multi-threaded workloads. There's been numerous projects to work on OpenMP support in LLVM/Clang and most recently Intel has been taking up the work. Intel's latest announcement in the area is that they have decided to open-source their own OpenMP Runtime as a new LLVM sub-project...

    Yuuuuuuup, though they may be looking to get out of the compiler business and move to LLVM/Clang + Internal patches, just a thought

    If the intel optimizations for avx, etc... goes to clang, it's going to be awesome!
