Addison-Wesley has published a new book called CUDA by Example: An Introduction to General-Purpose GPU Programming. The book is written by NVIDIA’s Jason Sanders and Edward Kandrot, both software engineers on the CUDA team.
CUDA by Example, written by two senior members of the CUDA software platform team, shows programmers how to employ this new technology. The authors introduce each area of CUDA development through working examples. After a concise introduction to the CUDA platform and architecture, as well as a quick-start guide to CUDA C, the book details the techniques and trade-offs associated with each key CUDA feature. You’ll discover when to use each CUDA C extension and how to write CUDA software that delivers truly outstanding performance.
This book is required reading for anyone working with accelerator-based computing systems.
