On Wednesday at the AMD Fusion Developer Summit, Microsoft announced C++ Accelerated Massive Parallelism (C++ AMP). C++ AMP helps C++ developers to leverage the GPU for parallel programming. To learn more, see Daniel Moth’s blog entry: C++ Accelerated Massive Parallelism and Soma’s blog entry: Targeting Heterogeneity with C++ AMP and PPL.
I’m personally thrilled about this, especially since my team will be working to provide full profiling and debugging support, which we will be discussing more here as the release of C++ AMP approaches.
