Insanely Great Science

OpenCL lecture 3

The third of a series of lectures on programming with OpenCL is available on MacResearch.

Building an OpenCL Project

“In this episode we cover some questions that were asked on the forums and via email about double-precision arithmetic, object oriented programming, clarification on global and local work groups and types of scientific calculations that are amenable to GPU computing. In addition, we'll go over in more detail how to query devices for specific information and features and walk through an example of an OpenCL calculation in Xcode.”

This is an excellent series and invaluable for anyone looking at options to squeeze maximum performance out of their program.
