+ - "Pure Java" API for Executing Compute Tasks on GPU->

Submitted by lehphyro
lehphyro (1465921) writes "This week Gary Frost from AMD unveiled an alpha release of Aparapi (A PARallel API) , an API that allows programmers to write logic in Java to be executed on a GPU. GPUs are the massively parallel hardware acceleration chips originally installed in PCs to boost graphics rendering performance but that are now pushed to other kinds of compute-intensive tasks that have nothing to do with graphics."
