GPU Computing C++ AMP fight Global warming
At an event co-hosted by Microsoft and NVIDIA, the two companies discussed about GPU computing and talked to Silicon Valley C++ developers about C++ AMP and CUDA being two sides of the same coin: NVIDIA’S CUDA is optimized for high performance while C++ AMP will be optimized for productivity.
GPU Computing, C++ AMP is a way to fight Global warming
At the event, it was shown how GPU computing, with the new C++ AMP extension would fight Global Warming with the crushing performance-per-watt advantage of C++ over competing programming languages. It is known that applications built using the C++ programming language are the best when it comes to fight Global Warming.
So, like I said in the earlier post regarding GPU Computing and C++ AMP, programmers and those learning programming, especially C++, should not neglect the next extension added to C++ programming language, as this seems to be the future of programming and applications. Also, I said above, GPU computing is a good way to fight the Global warming problem for a green environment. The C++ AMP extension is not available yet (we will have to way until Microsoft`s BUILD conference this fall), so let`s wait for the time to come.
The NVIDIA team also presented the basics of CUDA as well as Thrust , a CUDA library of parallel algorithms that makes programs more concise and human-readable at the event. This grabbed the interest of many. You can download CUDA and Thrust at
