AMD announces Fusion Developer Summit - Outlook on next gen GPUs
AMD goes Fusion - now also with developers. The Fusion Developer Summit may speed up AMDs connections into the developer community and may strengthen the position with CPU/GPU-combined software development.
AMD is hosting the Fusion Developer Summit in June. One can expect some information on Next Gen GPUs, codenamed R700 Southern Islands. Here's is the scoop:
Summit Keynote: Evolution of AMD's Graphics Core, and Preview of Graphics Core Next
GPU shader cores have been evolving frequently and significantly at AMD. We introduced our common shader core in 2007 with the HD 2000 series. This introduced the unified VLIW-5 instruction set that we've had since. In late 2010, we introduced the first significant departure from this core architecture, the symmetrical VLIW-4 used in the HD6900 series of products. In this presentation, we will review that evolution, but also present an overview of the next generation of AMD cores under development. This next generation of cores will propel forward its capabilities and continue this evolution.
And here is the full PR:
SUNNYVALE, Calif. — Apr. 26, 2011 — AMD (NYSE: AMD) today announced a distinguished line-up of keynote speakers as well as technical session topics for the inaugural AMD Fusion Developer Summit (AFDS), which will be held June 13-16, 2011 at the Meydenbauer Center in Bellevue, Washington.
Industry keynote presentations will be delivered by esteemed industry experts from AMD, ARM and Microsoft. In his keynote "Heterogeneous Parallelism at Microsoft" Herb Sutter, Microsoft principal architect of Native Languages, will showcase upcoming innovations to bring access to increasingly heterogeneous compute resources directly into the world's most popular native languages.
Jem Davies, ARM fellow and vice president of Technology, Media Processing Division, will deliver a keynote about ARM's long history of heterogeneous computing, its future strategy, and ARM's support of standards, including OpenCL™.
The summit will open and close with AMD keynote presentations as well. AMD corporate fellow Phil Rogers will explore the programmer's guide to Accelerated Processing Units (APUs), and Eric Demers, AMD corporate vice president and chief technology officer, Graphics, will deliver a keynote that chronicles the evolution of AMD's graphics cores and discuss next-generation AMD graphics technology.
"The development experts we've chosen to share their work at AFDS are at the forefront of next-generation programming, and are working to harness the full processing power of heterogeneous computing technologies," said Manju Hegde, corporate vice president, AMD Fusion Experience Program. "The AMD Fusion Developer Summit is the best place for developers, academics and innovators to collaborate around parallel programming and industry standards, helping the developer community to realize the promise of the latest computing methodologies, today and into the future."
Technical sessions, tutorials, hands-on labs and keynote presentations at AFDS will cover a range of topics including heterogeneous and high-performance computing (HPC), next-generation user interfaces, parallel programming tools and industry-standard application programming interfaces (APIs) such as OpenCL™, OpenGL™, Java and Microsoft DirectCompute. The Session Catalog for the AMD Fusion Developer Summit lists more than 90 in-depth technology sessions to be presented by industry and academic experts.
Speakers will be in attendance from a range of industry companies, universities and government organizations. Session topics include:
· Developer Tools
· Enterprise Computing
· High-Performance Computing
· Multimedia Processing
· Professional Graphics and Visual Computing
· Programming Models
· User Interface and Media Experiences
