SYCL 1.2: Unofficial High-Level Overview

This is my pitch for SYCL, which I hope helps you understand what SYCL means for C++ OpenCL programmers. This is not associated with Khronos in any way, and is my own opinion on the SYCL 1.2 specification. Additional OpencL training videos are available online. The SYCL provisional specification is available online. Read More

Compute shaders tutorial with OpenGL ES

ARM blog has a good tutorial on getting started with compute shaders. Compute shaders introduce GPU Compute from within the OpenGL® ES API; the same API and shading language which are used for graphics rendering. Now that compute shaders have been introduced to the API, developers do not have to learn another API in order to make use of GPU Compute. Read More
