Released Today! Our newest video tutorial, Intro to C/C++ multicore CPU and GPU programming with OpenMP and OpenCL, is now available for your viewing pleasure at the following link:
Link: Got Cores? Use ‘em!
This is a demonstration and discussion about using OpenMP and OpenCL for writing multicore CPU and GPU programs. This is for the intermediate C/C++ programmer who feels confident writing traditional single-threaded programs, and now wants to know more about the processes and tools that are out there to help in the transition to multicore.
We’ll take a simple little C/C++ program and run it first single-threaded, then adapt it to multicore CPU using OpenMP, then run it on the highly parallel graphics processor (GPU) using OpenCL. The goal is to foster “parallel thinking,” and to give you an idea of what kind of programming effort it takes, and what you can expect as a result.
