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.

Khronos to Create New Open Standard for Computer Vision

The Khronos Group announced a new initiative to create an open, royalty-free standard for cross platform acceleration of computer vision applications. In response to requests and proposals from members, Khronos has created a vision working group to develop a hardware acceleration API using the proven Khronos development process and aiming for a first public release within 12 months. Any interested company is welcome to join Khronos to make contributions, influence the direction of the specification and gain early access to draft specifications before public release. The vision working group will commence work during January 2012. Read More
