The first text of its kind, Kirk/Hwu’s Programming Massively Parallel Processors: A Hands-on Approach teaches your students the basic concepts of parallel programming and GPU architecture. This text will provide your students with the hands-on skills they need to work in an industry that has moved to multi-core processors.
Multi-core processors are no longer the future of computing—they are the present day reality. A typical mass-produced CPU features multiple processor cores, while a GPU (Graphics Processing Unit) may have hundreds or even thousands of cores. With the rise of multi-core architectures has come the need to teach advanced programmers a new and essential skill: how to program massively parallel processors.
Programming Massively Parallel Processors: A Hands-on Approach shows both student and professional alike the basic concepts of parallel programming and GPU architecture. Various techniques for constructing parallel programs are explored in detail. Case studies demonstrate the development process, which begins with computational thinking and ends with effective and efficient parallel programs.
- First and only text that teaches how to program within a massively parallel environment
- Practical approach teaches students how to become effective parallel programmers
- Online portions derived from NVIDIA provided content have been part of the curriculum at over 100 universities worldwide
- Online draft has been tested and taught by Kirk at the University of Illinois
Book utilizes OpenCL and CUDA, NVIDIA’s software development tool developed specifically for massively parallel environments.
