Xcelerit SDK Version 2.5 Released

Jan. 23 — Xcelerit has announced the release of version 2.5 of its SDK, increasing performance significantly, dramatically simplifying the user experience, and adding support for Visual Studio 2012 and Windows 8. A complete list of the updates and new features can be found in the Release Notes shipped with the package.

The award-winning Xcelerit SDK is a software toolkit to boost the performance of compute-intensive applications while preserving programmer’s productivity. From a single sequential source code – free from any parallel constructs, low-level compiler directives, etc. – the Xcelerit SDK can generate highly optimised code for a variety of target processors. These include multi-core CPUs, GPUs, and combinations of these. The programming interface is intuitive and suitable for many classes of algorithms, e.g. Monte-Carlo, Finite-difference, or Lattice-based methods.

The Xcelerit SDK is targeted at domain specialists performing heavy computations with the need of a flexible in-house solution. Users can focus on the core of their algorithm and the problem at hand, while still generating high-performance programs.

Major Updates and Features

  • Sharing arbitrary user-defined data types with GPUs
  • Improved data transfer performance
  • Added support for Visual Studio 2012 and Windows 8
  • Continued optimization and performance improvements
