There is a new programming language in town.

Called Data Parallel C++ (DPC++), it allows developers to reuse code across diverse hardware targets—CPUs and accelerators—and perform custom tuning for a specific accelerator.

DPC++ is part of oneAPI—an initiative led by Intel to create a unified programming model for cross-architecture development. Based on familiar C++ and SYCL*, DPC++ is an open alternative to single-architecture proprietary approaches and helps developers to create solutions that better meet specialized workload requirements.

Tune in to watch Intel vice president Alice Chan discuss this shift in programming flexibility, including:

  • Why cross-architecture development is a real need
  • What DPC++ brings to the table for developers
  • Why this non-proprietary approach will be more successful than other attempts for heterogeneous development (like OpenCL™ code)
  • How open specifications drive ecosystem innovation
  • How to get it (hint: it's part of the Intel® oneAPI Base Toolkit), plus an overview of what this toolkit offers

All in 17 minutes flat.
