AMD OpenCL Coding Contest

June 26th, 2011

AMD announced a GPGPU coding competition, called AMD OpenCL Coding Competition. The first phase of the competition is an open innovation challenge that requires the use of the AMD APP SDK and OpenCL. The competition is heating up with the highest registration for a TopCoder innovation challenge to date. It’s not too late to sign up and show off your ideas! If you submit your abstract before June 30th you will get feedback from AMD, otherwise you will have up until the deadline to submit your OpenCL innovation challenge submission.

Phase two of the competition will be an OpenCL algorithm optimization match that will start later in September. Read more about it in this AMD blog.
