Parallel Programming Increases Performance

Modern hardware has incredible performance improvements over older equipment, but if your programming habits haven't evolved to match, then all of these gains are lost. But what does parallel programming mean?

Modern hardware is able to do two or more things at the same time, achieved by having additional physical cores and specialized hardware. Basically multiple brains. However, software needs to be designed with this multitasking capacity in mind, or else only one task will be worked on at a time. Parallel programming makes use of multiple cores and additional hardware to complete tasks faster.

The Intel SDK for OpenCL Applications gives programmers the tools they need to easily make their programs run faster and utilize modern hardware features, such as integrated graphics engines.

A SDK Full of Features

The Intel SDK for OpenCL Applications is a fully featured development environment that allows developers to design, build and debug their code with parallel programming in mind. Develop in OpenCL for Windows, Linux and Android devices.

The debugger and analyzer allow you to troubleshoot and fine tune settings for both your parallel workloads. For developers who want to get started, there is a full community of coders that is developing and sharing tips and code samples for a wide variety of projects.

Support for the latest generation of Intel hardware and OpenCL 2.0 makes this SDK the most up-to-date solution for this type of development on Intel processors. Both Eclipse and Microsoft Visual Studio are fully supported so you don't have to change your development software to make use of this SDK. Catapult your development and programs into the current generation with all the functionality of this free SDK.

The Latest and Greatest SDK for Parallel Programming

The limit for the speed of processors hasn't been improved upon in recent years. Increasingly, better performance is being achieved by doing more calculations at the same time. Although there is still overhead in managing several different processors working on the same job, the gains are still significant. For programs to make use of these advancements, they need to make use of parallel programming.

With the Intel SDK for OpenCL Applications, developers can quickly and effectively learn and make use of the latest programming techniques to push the limits of current hardware. From design to build, to troubleshooting, this is everything you need, with the support to make you a better programmer. Download free today and start programming in parallel!
