4.0 out of 5 stars Good book on OpenCL, but not the best on the concepts of heterogeneous computing, 27 Jun 2013
I have read a few books on heterogeneous computing, and this is a very useful book, but it does have a few flaws.

1) The book uses concepts in example code that aren't discussed till chapters later. This is rather frustrating.
2) The book while being good at covering OpenCL concepts, manages to make optimization/heterogeneous concepts more confusing than the needed to be. I have seen this done far better in alternative books on the topic.

Overall I would recommend the book, but you may want to read around the area first.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great introduction., 31 Jan 2012

Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Very well structured with practical examples (matrix multiplication and image manipulation). I was running code on 2 graphics cards and 2 Xeons the day after this arriving using Nvidia and Intel opencl implementations ( both free to download).

Note that although the book is written by AMD people and they refer to AMD products in examples, it doesn't detract from it's usefulness.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Book, 14 Jan 2012

Provides everything you need to know. Significantly more succinct than the 'OpenCL Programming Guide'. Contains excellent examples and outlines - especially of the underlying example. It isn't just a rewrite of the specification.
