Here is the GotoMeeting login id for our Meetup on Breaking Through the Software Performance Wall with OpenCL All links below should be alive for clicking.
Tue Nov 25
You might not have felt it yet, but the software industry has hit a software performance wall. Old applications are unable to push through it, and quite frankly, they are not going to run any faster with new hardware because they have not been explicitly designed for it. Thanks to the efforts of Khronos, software developers have been given a
battering ram called OpenCL to knock that wall down so that OpenCL enabled applications can continue to scale with new hardware. OpenCL is a standard for parallel heterogeneous computing that makes hardware
vendors compete for your business, and helps your software scale again for years to come. It also provides a substantial strategic advantage to startup companies that leverage it.
“OpenCL offers enormous benefits for the computing community across many different platforms and markets. AJ is both a practitioner of heterogeneous computing and a member of the Khronos OpenCL working group – and so is perfectly placed to communicate the intricacies and opportunities offered by this new open standard.” – Neil Trevett, Khronos President, OpenCL Chair, VP NVIDIA
