3D-Tech News Around The Web / OpenCL Unleashing the Performance & Flexibility of the StemCell Computing Array« on: June 12, 2010, 07:58:43 AM »
The unveiling of OpenCL on the ZMS processors highlights how the performance and flexibility of the underlying StemCell Computing architecture can now be leveraged by developers using an industry standard API to bring new levels of performance to applications targeting low-power platforms.
OpenCL (Open Computing Language) is the first open, royalty-free standard for general-purpose parallel programming of heterogeneous systems. OpenCL provides a uniform programming environment for software developers to write efficient, portable code for parallel processors such as the ZiiLABS ZMS processors.
"OpenCL enables developers to unlock the full potential of the underlying StemCell Computing architecture to deliver new levels of performance across a broad range of applications.” said Tim Lewis, director of marketing of ZiiLABS. "The OpenCL based ray-tracing and video filter demos we provide a glimpse of the floating-point performance and flexibility that developers can exploit on ZMS-based platforms and products."

OpenCL Early Access Program
ZiiLABS is currently inviting developers with innovative ideas to use OpenCL for consumer class handheld and connected platforms to join an OpenCL Early Access Program that will provide selected partners an early release of the ZiiLABS OpenCL SDK* for ZMS processors.
