In this course you’ll learn about how accelerator hardware is designed and integrated into the system. With that foundation, we can start talking about what you can expect from the system when you use various C++AMP features. Specifically, we will talk about data transfers to and from the accelerator, memory layout and memory accesses from the accelerator, and thread execution and control flow on the accelerator. Then we’ll cover what support Microsoft’s Visual Studio 2012 has for C++ AMP.
This course assumes that you have a good understanding of core C++ concepts, included classes, objects, containers, and iterators. You should also be familiar with Visual Studio 2012 for Visual C++ development, including compilation, testing, and debugging. Although not required or expected, you may get more out of some parts of the course if you are familiar with multithreaded programming, Visual Studio 2012’s debugging capabilities for multiple threads, and basic computer architecture concepts.
