New Webinar: Taming GPU compute with C++ AMP

New Webinar:  Taming GPU compute with C++ AMP

Developers today inject parallelism into their compute-intensive applications in order to take advantage of multi-core CPU hardware. Beyond CPUs, however, compute accelerators such as general-purpose GPUs can provide orders of magnitude speed-ups for data parallel algorithms. How can you as a C++ developer fully utilize this heterogeneous hardware from your Visual Studio environment? How can you benefit from this tremendous performance boost in your Visual C++ solutions without sacrificing developer productivity? The answers will be presented in this session about C++ Accelerated Massive Parallelism.

Powerhouse Incoming Powerhouse Incoming

Battlefield 3, one of the most-anticipated PC games of the year, launched on October 25th. Powered by the new Frostbite 2 engine, developed by DICE and published by EA, Battlefield 3 runs the gamut of supported technologies including AMD Eyefinity and DirectX® 11. Frostbite 2 now enables deferred shading, dynamic global illumination and a new streaming architecture. Building on acclaimed high dynamic range (HDR) audio from previous Battlefield games, Battlefield 3 builds on the best-in-class legacy with a brutally realistic soundscape. AMD is running a promotion with Battlefield 3.

Bulk Encryption on GPUs Bulk Encryption on GPUs

This article covers the implementation and optimization of the Advanced Encryption Standard (AES) on AMD GPUs using OpenCL™, which is fine-tuned for bulk encryption applications.  The results illustrated in this article prove the viability of implementing the AES algorithm on the AMD GPUs, which show considerable speedups.
