Intel® TBB Meets Heterogeneous Computing

  • Overview

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.

Benchmark results were obtained prior to the implementation of recent software patches and firmware updates intended to address exploits referred to as "Spectre" and "Meltdown". Implementation of these updates may make these results inapplicable to your device or system.

Software and workloads used in performance tests may have been optimized for performance only on Intel microprocessors. Performance tests, such as SYSmark and MobileMark, are measured using specific computer systems, components, software, operations and functions. Any change to any of those factors may cause the results to vary. You should consult other information and performance tests to assist you in fully evaluating your contemplated purchases, including the performance of that product when combined with other products. For more information, see Performance Benchmark Test Disclosure.
