Intel® TBB Meets Heterogeneous Computing


Computing platforms are becoming increasingly heterogeneous with the combination of CPUs, GPUs, FPGAs, co-processors, and domain-specific compute engines. But programming to take advantage of these heterogeneous environments in a single application remains a challenge. This webinar provides a brief overview of Intel® Threading Building Blocks (Intel® TBB), a leading C++ template library for shared-memory parallel programming, and discuss its new and upcoming features for harnessing the spectrum of compute resources made available in heterogeneous systems.

These features enable asynchronous communication with devices using standard programming models, such as OpenCLTM*, and also provide the basic building blocks needed to integrate proprietary APIs for accessing devices in to an Intel TBB application in a composable way. Join us to see how you can use Intel TBB to not only exploit the CPU cores on your system, but to coordinate the other compute resources.

Product and Performance Information


Intel's compilers may or may not optimize to the same degree for non-Intel microprocessors for optimizations that are not unique to Intel microprocessors. These optimizations include SSE2, SSE3, and SSSE3 instruction sets and other optimizations. Intel does not guarantee the availability, functionality, or effectiveness of any optimization on microprocessors not manufactured by Intel. Microprocessor-dependent optimizations in this product are intended for use with Intel microprocessors. Certain optimizations not specific to Intel microarchitecture are reserved for Intel microprocessors. Please refer to the applicable product User and Reference Guides for more information regarding the specific instruction sets covered by this notice.
