We’re all familiar with C++. But DPC++?
Shorthand for Data Parallel C++, it’s the new direct programming language of oneAPI—an initiative led by Intel to unify and simplify application development across diverse computing architectures.
DPC++ is based on familiar (and industry-standard) C++, incorporates SYCL* specification 1.2.1 from the Khronos Group*, and includes language extensions developed using an open community process. Purposely designed as an open, cross-industry alternative to single-architecture, proprietary languages, DPC++ enables developers to more easily port their code across CPUs, GPUs, and FPGAs, and also tune performance for a specific accelerator.
Tune in for an overview of this new programming model with Michael Kinsner, software engineer at Intel and Khronos Group contributor.
