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!

Hi i there My name is Bryan Downing.

It also posts different unique tips and tricks on Java, C++, or C programming. It posts about different techniques in learning about Matlab and building models or strategies. There is a lot here if you are into venturing into the financial world like quant or technical analysis. It also discusses the future generation of trading and programming Specialties: C++, Java, C#, Matlab, quant, models, strategies, technical analysis, linux, windows P.S. I have been known to be the worst typist. Do not be offended by it as I like to bang stuff out and put priorty of what I do over typing. Maybe one day I can get a full time copy editor to help out. Do note I prefer videos as they are much easier to produce so check out my many video at youtube.com/quantlabs
