In case you missed it, we recently held a webinar on the ArrayFire GPU Computing Library. This webinar was part of an ongoing series of webinars that will help you learn more about the many applications of ArrayFire, while interacting with AccelerEyes GPU computing experts.

ArrayFire is the world’s most comprehensive GPU software library. In this webinar, James Malcolm, who has built many of ArrayFire’s core components, walked us through the basic principles and syntax for ArrayFire. He also provided an overview of existing efforts in GPU software, and compared them to the extensive capabilities of ArrayFire.

For example, the same application that takes 26 lines to write in Thrust, can be coded up in just 3 lines in ArrayFire!

ArrayFire has supported CUDA-based NVIDIA GPUs for a long time now. AccelerEyes has recently made huge strides in expanding support for OpenCL-based acceleration devices. ArrayFire now has support for recently-introduced chips like the Xeon Phi. Go ahead and download the ArrayFire v2.0 Pre-release for OpenCL today!
