OpenCL & the Future of Desktop High Performance Computing in CAD

Modern desktop computers have more compute capabilities than ever before.  Most of these systems include both a central processing unit (CPU) and a graphics processing unit (GPU), each consisting of multiple computing cores providing tremendous processing power.  To date, harnessing the total processing power of a desktop workstation, fully utilizing both the CPU and GPU, has proven difficult for software developers.  CPUs and GPUs have few similarities in both design and programming models. OpenCL is the tool that bridges the gap for software developers and enables them to fully tap into the power of both processors with a single software programming interface.

This presentation will examine the details of CPUs and GPUs, explore their differences and similarities, and highlight the computing power they can provide. We will also take a look OpenCL, what it is, what it does, and how this new computing interface will change the way software developers create software and help end users fully realize the compute power contained within today’s modern desktop computers.

This webinar will cover:

• The details of CPUs and GPUs and explore their differences and similarities
• OpenCL, what it is, what it does, and how it will change the way software developers create software
• How OpenCL helps users fully realize the computing power within today's desktop computers
