GPU Development Details for Visual Studio and the C ++ AMP Platform

    Application development technologies that fully utilize the computing resources of graphic accelerators (GPUs) are gaining popularity and relevance. Today, almost every computer and laptop is equipped with a graphics adapter with huge computing power that could potentially be used by applications to significantly speed up computing.

    One of the latest Microsoft research results in heterogeneous computing (CPU + GPU bundle) was the announcement of the C ++ AMP platform , which allows you to fully utilize all the capabilities of modern multi-core processors and GPUs. The platform announcement was made at the AMD Fusion'11 conference this summer, you can read more about this in this blog post.. At the same event, built-in debugging and profiling tools for GPU code were announced in the next generation of Visual Studio. Detailed reports on the new platform were also read at the recent BUILD conference.

    We are pleased to inform you that at Tech ∙ Ed Russia 2011 you will be able to first-hand learn about the new features offered by the C ++ AMP platform and the new GPU code tools that will be built into the next generation of the Visual Studio development environment. A special report entitled “ Introduction to the C ++ AMP Heterogeneous Computing Platform and GPU Tools in Visual Studio 11”Maxim Goldin, who is invited from Redmond, who works at Microsoft as a senior development engineer in the Visual Studio group, will read it specially for you.
