ATI FirePro V8800 brings ultra high end performance OpenCL & Eyefinity to workstation graphics

The new ATI FirePro V8800, the workstation equivalent to the Radeon HD 5870, provides 1600 stream processors for more than double the computational power of it's predecessor (V8750) - 2.6 Teraflops!, 2GB GDDR5 RAM, 4 Display Port outputs, Stereo3D, CrossFire Pro support, and Windows & Linux drivers. For this new FirePro line, AMD is strongly emphasizing support for OpenGL 4 and OpenCL open standards. Performance reviews are already out from HotHardware and most notably 3DProfessor. General consensus is: performance at a completely new level.

Case study on OpenCL low poly collision detection

The case study on OpenCL low poly collision detection is included in the online CMSoft OpenCL tutorials. Highly details descriptions and source code will lead you through an implementation of low polygon collision detection algorithm suitable for engineering assembly analyses. This case study uses OpenGL and Lab3D to display the 3D models.

OpenCL - OpenGL Interop Tutorial

Using OpenCL to manipulate OpenGL objects has important advantages: the GPU is usually faster and data transfer from Host memory to Device memory is kept to a minimum. CMSoft OpenCL/GL interop tutorial shows detailed implementation of circular wave interference simulation using CL/GL interop, including commented source code available for download.

ODE system solving with OpenCL

Differential equations are crucial to all exact sciences, such as engineering, physics, chemistry and even economics. There packages use GPUs to compute solutions to problems such as solving linear systems and computing FFT. This work covers an easy-to-use ordinary differential equation system solver for scientific applications and games. Examples include calculating trajectories and collision of particles in game engines, electron-proton interactions, gravitational calculations, dynamic modeling of deformable bodies and many more.

Khronos Drives Momentum of Parallel Computing Standard with Release of OpenCL 1.1 Specification

The Khronos™ Group today announced the ratification and public release of the OpenCL™ 1.1 specification, the latest version of the open, royalty-free standard for cross-platform, parallel programming of modern processors. OpenCL 1.1 adds significant functionality for enhanced parallel programming flexibility, functionality and performance including:

  • New data types including 3-component vectors and additional image formats;
  • Handling commands from multiple hosts and processing buffers across multiple devices;
  • Operations on regions of a buffer including read, write and copy of 1D, 2D or 3D rectangular regions;
  • Enhanced use of events to drive and control command execution;
  • Additional OpenCL C built-in functions such as integer clamp, shuffle and asynchronous strided copies;
  • Improved OpenGL interoperability through efficient sharing of images and buffers by linking OpenCL and OpenGL events.

Perth GPU Users Group to discus OpenCL and OpenGL

Learn and share ideas at the Perth GPU Users group. Founded to bring together GPU users from all fields and experience levels in Western Australia. Topics of discussion include general GPU computing, GPGPU, CUDA, OpenCL, OpenGL, DirectCompute, DirectX and related technologies. The next meetup is tentatively scheduled for June 23rd at the ground Floor Physics Building, University of Western Australia (Crawley Campus) 35 Stirling Highway, Crawley WA. 5:30pm - 7pm. You can find additional Khronos API related events and meet-ups on the Khronos Group events page.
