Video of OpenCL particle simulation scaling from 1 to 24 CPU cores

Aug 05, 2009

To accompany their free OpenCL for CPU beta download, AMD has posted a video of a 4P six-core AMD processor-based system (24 total cores) running an OpenCL-based, fluid/particle simulation (Powder Toy). The demo runs through enabling progressively more CPU cores and you see the performance scaling. It’s an impressive demonstration of how OpenCL can accelerate well on multicore CPUs as well as the GPU’s data parallel architecture.
