One of the HPC team’s “sister groups” is the Parallel Computing Platform team, which creates tools that allow developers to efficiently harness the power of multicore processors. We are pleased to say that they have recently announced a new technology called “C++ Accelerated Massive Parallelism” (with the sweet acronym “C++ AMP”) that will ship with the next version of Visual Studio.
 
This new technology will help C++ developers easily use GPUs from any vendor in their code!
