OpenCL: The Future of Accelerated Application Performance Is Now

This white paper is a followup to the AMD FirePro webinar "OpenCL & the Future of Desktop High Performance Computing in CAD" (now on-demand). It is a worthwhile introduction to what OpenCL and general-purpose computing across both CPUs and GPUs. In addition to the technology, it discusses why use an open standards / non-proprietary approach and the rapid growth rate of OpenCL. Finally it describes some of the applications that will take immediate advantage of OpenCL including numerical computation and high-end visualization in CAD/CAM/CAE or real-time visualization/presentation, real-time video processing, and physics simulations in DCC/ Media & Entertainment.

New OpenCL sorting and scanning library released

CLOGS is a library for higher-level operations on top of the OpenCL C++ API. It is designed to integrate with other OpenCL code, including synchronization using OpenCL events.

Currently two operations are supported: radix sorting and exclusive scan. Radix sort supports all the unsigned integral types as keys, and all the built-in scalar and vector types suitable for storage in buffers as values. Scan supports all the integral types. It also supports vector types, which allows for limited multi-scan capabilities.

Khronos Group Releases OpenMAX IL 1.2 Provisional Specification

The Khronos Group today announced the release of OpenMAX™ IL 1.2 as a provisional specification. OpenMAX IL is a royalty-free, cross-platform C-language API for integration of multimedia components into media frameworks to simplify deployment of audio/video encoders/decoders, camera control, and audio, video and image processing algorithms across diverse platforms. OpenMAX IL 1.2 is a backward compatible upgrade that includes dynamic buffer allocation, improved media graph management, in-band signaling, enhanced audio video synchronization, a wider range of standard components and enhanced camera control capabilities together with many other improvements and clarifications to increase interoperability between media processing components. The specification has been released in provisional form to enable developers and implementers to provide feedback before specification finalization. The OpenMAX IL 1.2 provisional specification is available for immediate download.
