The fourth video in the DirectCompute series, Basics of DirectCompute, is now live on Channel 9.  In this video, Jason Yang from ATI/AMD teaches you the basics of developing applications that use DirectCompute.  The following topics are covered:

  • Instantiating a DirectCompute device
  • Writing and Compiling DirectCompute code
  • Executing DirectCompute code on the GPU
  • Retrieving resulting data for use on the CPU

After watching the lecture and going over the tutorial you should be good to go creating simple applications that use the GPU for parallel processing.  The specific example that Jason uses in the video is matrix multiply - one of the simplest examples of problems that can be accellerated using GPGPU.
