OpenCL Buffers and Memory Affinity OpenCL Buffers and Memory Affinity

Part 5 of this series on OpenCL programming discusses buffers and demonstrates how to tie computation to data in a multi-device, multi-GPU environment. Example source code is provided that queues a user-specified number of tasks split amongst multiple CPU and GPU command queues.

Primitive Restart and OpenGL Interoperability Primitive Restart and OpenGL Interoperability

OpenGL is a common graphical programming API (Application Programming Interface) that is standards based, cross-language, and cross-platform. It can be used to create applications that can render 2D and 3D images on most visualization hardware. OpenGL and OpenCL interoperability can greatly accelerate both data generation as well as data visualization. This article demonstrates that interoperability and the use of primitive restart.

APU 101: All about AMD Fusion Accelerated Processing Units APU 101: All about AMD Fusion Accelerated Processing Units

An APU is an entirely new kind of processor that combines the advantages of a central processing unit (CPU) and a graphics processing unit (GPU). The result is the world's first high-performing, power-efficient and balanced APU platform ever, paving the way for applications in areas like gesture and facial recognition, search and indexing, and dynamic video enhancement that have only been imagined before. And to understand why any of it is possible, you have to see it in the context of the history of computing and the cycle of innovation that has taken both serial and parallel processor performance to new levels over and over and over again.
