Powered by a 1GHz Arm Cortex A8 processor, the ZMS-08 is targeted at media-rich applications, with low-power requirements for a netbook. ZiiLabs’ specification page claims the new chip does H.264 1080 decoding at 40MBPs, and includes support for OpenGL ES 2.0.
DMP is proud to announce two all new OpenGL ES programming training courses. OpenGL ES programming training I and II will run January 13-14 and January 20-21 2010. Complete details are available online for the Training I and Training II courses in english, and in Japanese.
NVIDIA has released their CUDA Toolkit 3.2. Lots of new goodness in this version, with special note the new OpenCL support. This means you can now use one toolkit for both CUDA and OpenCL. Support is currently only for Linux and Windows.
AMD to hand out free copies of their newly-published book "OpenCL programming on AMD CPU/GPUs" at the Khronos DevU on December 8th, and the December 9th Conference and Lunch.
ARM has announced the ARM® Mali™-300 graphics processing unit (GPU), supporting OpenGL® ES 2.0 and bringing High Definition (HD) graphics performance to entry-level and mid-range consumer devices.The Mali-300 GPU offers support for the Khronos industry standards OpenVG™ 1.1, and OpenGL® ES 1.1/2.0, in common with other ARM Mali GPUs.
AMD has posted a great Google Map showing Universities world-wide that offer OpenCL coursework.
The OpenCL supported Blender Compositor shows significant gains on OpenCL capable machines.
NVIDIA has brought the Fermi graphics architecture to the Mac with the launch of the Quadro 4000 for Mac. The workstation-class video supports the same features as its Windows counterpart and focuses heavily on general-purpose computing. OpenCL in Snow Leopard also gets a boost from this release and can greatly accelerate apps that are using NVIDIA's own CUDA language as well, such as video processing in Adobe Premiere Pro CS5.
Available at WhatIf.intel.com, this implementation delivers OpenCL 1.1 specification features optimized for Intel Core™ processors for developers desiring to explore CPU advantages found on many OpenCL workloads. Currently, Microsoft Windows 7 and Windows Vista operating systems are supported. Intel OpenCL SDK is a full implementation of the OpenCL 1.1 specification, including all API's and language features, and supports additional optional features and extensions such as: Out-of-order Execution model, Images support, Double precision floating point, OpenCL-OpenGL interoperability, and more. This SDK is not fully conformant yet.
