An Introduction to Programming with SYCL on Perlmutter and Beyond, March 1, 2022

IntroductionSYCL is an open standard programming model that allows developers to use standard C++ code to program for a range of GPUs and other accelerator processors. This means that it is possible to develop using modern C++ code and target Nvidia, AMD and Intel GPUs from a single code base. To enable SYCL on the latest supercomputers, Codeplay has been working in partnership with different National Laboratories to bring SYCL support to Perlmutter, Polaris and Frontier. Join engineers from… Read More »
