RapidMind Eases Multi-Core Development

RapidMind yesterday announced a major new release of its RapidMind Multi-Core Development Platform. Version 3.0 is the first version that supports the multi-core x86 processors (Intel and AMD). RapidMind lets applications automatically adapt to multiple-core systems without the need for recompilation.

Today, operating systems and applications do a poor job of taking advantage of the now-standard multi-core servers and even desktop systems. RapidMind looks to be changing that, enabling operating systems and applications to be written to take full advantage of additional cores.

Have you looked at Perfmon on a multiple-core system? I have. Tell me what you see at [email protected].
