C++ AMP heterogeneous computing coding challenge sponsored by Beyond3D, Microsoft and AMD
June 27, 2012 by Tony DeYoung
Beyond3D has teamed up with Microsoft and AMD to sponsor a coding challenge focused on Heterogeneous Computing using Microsoft’s C++ AMP.
“We wanted a somewhat equivocal task, that forced thought to be invested in the design and potentially allowed for the optimal solution to be a heterogeneous one, as opposed to a purely CPU or GPU one. Which brought us, to the somewhat famous, somewhat old, definitely challenging Travelling Salesman Problem.
The contest began June 12 and ends August 31, 2012. Microsoft and AMD will act as referees. AMD is providing the quad-core CPU, Radeon GPU prizes.
