For HFT: Trying out Microsoft Windows 8 trial for AMP capabilities for GPU debug preview within Visual Studio 2012 C++
UPDATE: C++ AMP is slowest compared to CUDA http://codinggorilla.domemtech.com/?p=1135
This is required to take advantage of this feature. As a result, I might as well try it. There is also a decent priced upgrade if this thing works but no way in hell will I upgrade my primary system with an immature Windows 8.
Let’s see what happens.
Ok. This thing is installed but it kind of looks cool but now what. How do I get into the classic desktop. I tried the lower left but nothing happens with the switch between Metro and what I am used. I could not open any of these side Windows. It is pretty crappy if I cannot use it. I think it might be wise to go to Windows Server 2012 instead as it has some stuff I am used to . I think Microsoft has a lot of work ahead to make people really use this thing. I am sure it is matter of time but that I don’t have. At this point, Windows 8 fails from my point of view. Windows Server 2012 has some hope though especially for developers.NOTE I now post my TRADING ALERTS into my personal FACEBOOK ACCOUNT and TWITTER. Don't worry as I don't post stupid cat videos or what I eat!
