3D Shape generator using OpenGL3 and OpenCL

The Belgian scientist Johan Gielis discovered a mathematical formula to describe many shapes existing in nature. This formula is called the "Super Formula". To demonstrate GPGPU and to show that it can be used for many purposes including simply having some fun, we developed the "SuperShaper". A tool that uses OpenCL to create very high-detail 3D models using the Super Formula.

CTK Workbench 1.0 for rapid prototyping of OpenCL kernels released

4pixels announces the first release of the CTK Workbench. The CTK Workbench is a powerful rapid prototyping environment. All kernels supported by the CTK can easily be connected to data sources and data viewers. New kernels can be created by entering the OpenCL source code and defining inputs and outputs. Images, video streams, binary data and audio streams are supported. All results are visible in real time.

AMD rebrands OpenCL SDK to AMD Accelerated Parallel Processing - supports Fusion APUs

AMD recently renamed their OpenCL Stream SDK to AMD Accelerated Parallel Processing (APP). APP is a set of advanced hardware and software technologies that enable AMD graphics processing cores (GPU), working in concert with the system’s x86 cores (CPU), to accelerate many applications beyond just graphics. This update also offers support for AMD E-Series and C-Series platforms (AMD Fusion APUs).

Astrophysical Supercomputing with GPUs: Critical Decisions for Early Adopters

A paper recently published by the Astronomical Society of Australia on how GPGPUs are dramatically changing the landscape of high performance computing in astronomy.This paper identifies and investigates several key decision areas, with a goal of simplifying the early adoption of GPGPU in astronomy. The merits of OpenCL are considered as an open standard in order to reduce risks associated with coding in a native, vendor-specific programming environment, and present a GPU programming philosophy based on using brute force solutions.
