AMD Developer Summit 2013 CFP
The AMD Developer Summit 2013 is a summit for technology professionals in heterogeneous computing. It's the place to discuss, debate, and immerse yourself in the latest tools, techniques, and advancements in OpenCL™, C++AMP, OpenGL, and APUs. The AMD Developer Summit 2013 Call for Presentation Proposals is now open. Read the blog for more details or submit your proposal on the proposal submission website.
We’re putting together a library of the best articles and research on topics such as heterogeneous computing, OpenCL™ and performance & optimization. Additional resources will be added to the library throughout the year. Email us with a link to your favorite article on these or other relevant topics. We’ll review your suggestion, and if it’s a good fit, add it to the library.
hUMA - the Next Big Thing in Processors
The HSA Foundation has released a new multicore architecture specification called hUMA or heterogeneous uniform memory access. hUMA allows CPUs and GPUs to share the same memory in a heterogeneous system architecture (HSA). hUMA makes it easier for developers to create apps that use the individual powers of CPUs and GPUS and is compatible with mainstream programming languages like Python, C++ & Java. You'll soon be able to see hUMA in action in AMD’s Kaveri processors.
