Parallel computing is being taken to the next level by leveraging the GPU for general computing tasks. AMD is fully behind this heterogeneous computing revolution with our hardware, software tools & libraries, and support of open standards. Get trained by OpenCL™ and heterogeneous compute experts on the latest technology advances, standards, and best practices for heterogeneous compute.
AMD excited to bring a guest presenter and well known GPGPU guru, Rob Farber, to deliver a series of three OpenCL webinars that accompany his 9 AMD sponsored OpenCL article series found below:
1. April 24th, 10AM PDT, Coordinating OpenCL Computations on one more Heterogeneous Devices
- How to Concisely Utilize Multiple Command Queues and Coordinate Tasks Across Multiple Heterogeneous Devices such as two GPU + CPU
- Code Sample Discussion: Massively Parallel Random Number Test Framework
- Reference articles 4, 5 and 8
- How to use OpenCL to Provide High-Quality, Fast Rendering in Combination with Primitive Restart
- Device Fission, Partitioning Hardware Capabilities for Optimal Resource Usage
- Looking to the Future – WebCL
- Reference articles 6, 7 and 9
Registration is limited, don’t wait, register for all three today!
Who is Rob Farber you ask?
Rob Farber is a senior scientist and research consultant at the Irish Center for High-End Computing in Dublin, Ireland and Chief Scientist for BlackDog Endeavors, LLC in the US.

Previously Recorded Webinar:
Introducing OpenCL Portable Parallelism presented by guest speaker, Rob Farber
This webinar will introduce the nine article OpenCL Portable Parallelism series by Rob Farber on The Code Project. Articles 1, 2 and 3 will be discussed including (1) C and C++ APIs for OpenCL plus building and running applications (2) OpenCL memory spaces and (3) the OpenCL execution model. Complete code examples from each article will be discussed to help get started with OpenCL. In particular, the importance of the OpenCL strong scaling execution model will be highlighted along with other reasons to consider OpenCL for your application development.
