C++ AMP, Part 1 of 2: Parallelism and Management
with expert John Stratton
The course will start with an overview of how you can analyze code in terms of kinds of work, and identify where C++AMP might be useful. We’ll talk about why C++AMP is useful for taking full advantage of modern computing systems, and how you can begin to use C++AMP constructs in your existing code. We’ll also compare C++AMP to other popular heterogeneous computing models, so that you can see the tradeoffs associated with each. Then we’re going to cover the abstractions available in C++AMP for managing the accelerator devices themselves. Once an application has a handle on the device it wants to use for computation, it will also need to express data collections and data indexes, possibly in multiple dimensions.
