Using Multiple Cores and GPUs in Native Code


June 17, 2013


Ever wonder how to get full use of all those cores in your machines? How about using your GPU for more than just painting the screen? This talk will cover the various libraries that are available to make parallel programming in C++ easier. We will explore what is available in PPL, C++ AMP, and CUDA GPU. Most of the talk will focus on how to get the most out of GPUs using the CUDA libraries.
