New OpenCL sample code showcases load balancing compute across both CPU and Graphics

The NBody sample by Intel features a load balancing approach to compute an NBody simulation across both the CPU and Intel HD Graphics. This sample illustrates how to maximize the efficiency of the processor by being able to use both the CPU and Intel HD Graphics simultaneously on a platform. The end result is not only being the sum of the performance on both devices, but also largely improving application power performance on platforms such as Ultrabook. Source code is available and is accompanied with graphics visualization of the job distribution between the devices. Get the sample here. Read More
