PyOpenCL functional Python wrapper around OpenCL released

PyOpenCL has been released. This OpenCL wrapper for Python has complete documentation and a wiki setup. Key features of PyOpenCL are: object cleanup tied to lifetime of objects; the full power of OpenCL’s API at your disposal with every obscure get_info() query and all CL calls are accessible; automatic error checking; base layer is written in C++; complete documentation; a liberal open-source and free for commercial, academic, and private use under the MIT/X11 license. If you have feedback on this wrapper, you can contribute to a live discussion in the Khronos Message Boards.

OpenCL: Parallel programmers’ new best friend

Apple's Snow Leopard hit the streets friday as the first major OS to support OpenCL. OpenCL, the Open Computing Language, was originally proposed by Apple to support parallel programming on GPUs and handed over to the Khronos Group, the same independent standards organization that manages the OpenGL standard for 3D rendering. Support for OpenCL may start with Snow Leopard but it will go well beyond that. AMD and Nvidia will have OpenCL drivers for their GPUs under Windows and Linux. AMD and Intel will support OpenCL on their CPUs (including Intel's Larrabee). AMD has already shipped its first OpenCL implementation for its Athlon and Opteron processors. For those folks with OpenCL already up and running on their Apple computers under Snow Leopard, there are two benchmark applications out, so you can see just what OpenCL can do for you.

OpenTK 0.9.9-2 C# OpenGL bindings

OpenTK is an advanced, cross-platform library that provides Mono/.Net OpenGL, OpenGL ES, OpenAL and OpenCL bindings. The latest version adds support for all OpenGL ES extensions, significantly improves the OpenCL bindings and the ARB_imaging subset of OpenGL. A new compatibility module now allows Tao framework applications to run on OpenTK and improves behavior on broken xlib implementations. Finally, this version adds support for the iPhone platform via the MonoTouch project.

HPCWire features OpenCL Promises and Potential

While OpenCL is very similar in many respects to NVIDIA's CUDA, it adds features to take advantage of other targets; and though it's quite complex, it has the potential to deliver very high performance, and is much easier than trying to map your computation into OpenGL or graphics primitives. So says Michael Wolfe, with over 30 years in both academia and industry on developing compilers, and is now a senior compiler engineer at The Portland Group, Inc., a wholly-owned subsidiary of STMicroelectronics, Inc.
