Xilinx and its ecosystem will showcase smarter data center solutions that leverage Vivado Design Suite and the portability of OpenCL programming language at Supercomputing Conference 2013 (SC13). Experts in Xilinx's data center and design methodology groups will be conducting in-depth technical demonstrations that showcase: acceleration of Monte Carlo options pricing on x86 platform; high speed (HD 1080p) video processing on a Zynq®-7000 SoC platform; and OpenCL design environment for Xilinx FPGAs. To schedule a private appointment visit Xilinx at the Convey booth (#3547) or the Alpha Data booth (#4237).
SC13 is just around the corner and The Khronos Group has a lot lined up. Visit Khronos in Booth #4137 to meet and talk with OpenCL experts and get your OpenCL reference card. If Birds of a Feather are more your style, there is also a BOF lined up for November 20th with Tim Mattson, Ben Bergen, Simon McIntosh-Smith, giving you a chance to meet colleagues working with OpenCL and share best practices in OpenCL programming. Also learn about next year’s plans for IWOCL (International Workshop on OpenCL).
Intel is holding a two event in Isreal next week with lots of OpenCL and OpenGL discussions planned. The interaction among advanced compilation techniques, modern processor and computing architectures, and associated tools continues to face new challenges and opportunities. The main focus of this conference is the interaction of compiler technologies, processor and computing architectures and tools to address the latest programming environments and demands.
The AMD CodeXL 1.3 release which includes many updates including remote GPU profiling and debugging. Bolt, an STL compatible C++ template library for creating data-parallel applications using C++ (no C++ AMP / OpenCL code required) has also been updated. AMD APP SDK has also been updated to v2.9. APP SDK 2.9 now includes 2 new features which are currently in Beta.
For the third consecutive year, AMD invites computing innovators, developers and researchers in the rapidly growing field of heterogeneous computing to submit their latest work and research findings in the form of archival presentations for AMD’s annual developer summit. There will be 20 Khronos Group related talks this year covering WebCL, OpenCL, OpenGL and WebGL.
Blackmagic Design today that the latest version of its flagship color-correction system, DaVinci Resolve 10, is now available for download. The software's OpenCL support makes Resolve 10 4K-ready. At IBC in September, AMD demonstrated Resolve's GPU-accelerated real-time playback capabilities when grading 4K CinemaDNG footage from the Blackmagic Cinema Camera with a single Resolve system running four AMD FirePro W-series graphics cards.
The presentation slides from a 3 hour workshop offering a rapid tour of the current GPU Compute landscape with a focus on mobile and ARM® Mali™ GPUs in particular are now online. OpenCL™ and RenderScript API were looked at fairly closely.
For those interested, complimentary access to all APU 13 keynote sessions is available by registering online, in limited numbers while quantities last. Notable keynote speakers include: Dr. Lisa Su, senior vice president and general manager, Global Business Units, AMD; Johan Andersson, technical director, DICE; Dominic Mallinson, vice president, research and development, Sony; and Mark Papermaster, chief technology officer, AMD. The Developer summit will feature 20 Khronos related sessions on WebGL, OpenCL, WebCL and of course, OpenGL
MulticoreWare has been instrumental in help push more than fifty commits into the core code-base today for the LibreOffice open-source office suite. These commits are work on support for "GPU Calc" to take advantage of OpenCL for various math spreadsheet calculations. The OpenCL changes should be apart of the LibreOffice 4.2 release due out in late January or early February.
drawElements is proud to announce the addition of ARM to their GPU analysis system drawElements Quality Program. ARM expands its quality assurance processes with the adoption of the OpenCL and OpenGL ES 3.0 test modules of the drawElements Quality Program – the dEQP. The dEQP provides ARM with tens of thousands of automated test cases as well as associated services from drawElements’ expert engineers.
