Microsoft* DirectCompute exposes the compute functionality of graphics hardware as a new shader type: the compute shader. DirectCompute allows you to program compute shaders on Intel® microarchitecture code name Ivy Bridge hardware. This paper describes how.
This is the second and last part of the Microsoft DirectCompute series. This article covers programming DirectCompute with Microsoft DirectX* 10–class graphics processors, while the previous article focused on Microsoft DirectX 11–class hardware.
