Intel has released Intel SDK for OpenCL Applications 2013 Beta. This Beta SDK allows OpenCL 1.2 API preview support on Intel CPUs mixed with the production OpenCL 1.1 support on the Intel HD Graphics. It also includes new tools such as a new kernel builder and GNU Debugger (GDB) support which ease the creation of OpenCL applications. This new beta SDK now supports Windows 8 and is compatible with the latest Intel HD Graphics driver for Windows 8
Please meet Work Group Chairs, Khronos founding members and other technology experts at the Khronos Group News Conference and BOFs. The first hour of our day is especially created for the press to get all the Khronos news in one shot. but of course you are encouraged to attend all of our BOFS to get more detail and to attend the very special OpenGL 20th anniversary party
It's been an incredible week hasn't it? The latest news about OpenGL rendering Zombies faster than Direct3D really got the twittersphere going! SimLab Composer 2013 adds WebGL export capability and ARM has submitted the Mali-T604 GPU for full profile OpenCL conformance. Back on the Khronos front, COLLADA still has room for you to come on over and show off your COLLADA demo at Siggraph, and we've also updated the official Khronos Siggraph event page with updated BOF schedules, and lots more sponsors for the OpenGL Party! Thank you everyone that has sponsored the party so far. Big news this year, it's OpenGL's 20th Anniversary and we'll be celebrating this momentus occasion in style.There will be lots of OpenGL legends, lots of food, drink and of course, lots and lots of prizes!
Going to SIGGRAPH? Be sure to check out some amazing demo's, presentations, prizes and more. Khronos has a news conference, five BOFs (COLLADA, OpenCL, WebGL, OpenGL ES & OpenGL) and a huge OpenGL party, all happening on Tuesday next week. Full details can be found here, and the party details can be found here.
ARM has submitted their Mali-T604 graphics processing unit (GPU) for OpenCL 1.1 Full Profile conformance with The Khronos Group. This product is based on a published Khronos Specification, and is expected to pass the Khronos Conformance Testing Process.
Todd Roberts of AMD, discusses the key concepts and workflows behind the OpenCL execution model that incorporates both task and data parallelism. He also discusses the standard pattern for building an OpenCL program as well as offering sample code.
Watch Alina Alt explain compute API interoperability with OpenGL (using CUDA and OpenCL APIs) and delve into interoperability at a system level (or review the slides). Alina explains challenges and benefits of dedicating one GPU for compute and another for graphics, how different system configurations affect data transfer between two GPUs, and how it translates into application design decisions helping to enable an efficient, cross-GPU interoperability between compute and graphics contexts.
You can find updated schedules for all Khronos Group BOFs online.
Acceleware's customized 4-day OpenCL training consists of classroom lectures and several practical hands-on exercises. It is specifically tailored for learning parallel programming in OpenCL on AMD GPUs and APUs. Attendees should have a background C/C++ (2 or more years).
