General Development "As an industry trend, advancement in heterogeneous hardware has progressed at a rapid pace. This in turn has fueled developer desire to target such hardware for accelerated computation, necessitating a significant step forward in programming models to enable such practices. C++ Accelerated Massive Parallelism (C++ AMP) is a new technology implemented in Visual Studio 11 that helps C++ developers use accelerators such as the GPU for parallel programming."

It seems appropriate that C++ AMP would require Visual Studio to go to 11.


Could you please explain? I don't get it.

The intentional misspelling of "apropos" is really the cherry on the cake.

Oops, not intentional, but don't tell anyone. Probably should have added a ", dude" to the end, also. Say Luh Vee!
