    An Introduction to GPGPU and Many-Core Systems Programming with OpenCL, CUDA, WebCL and C++AMP. GPU and Many-Core systems are important to the future of computing. They can provide tremendous performance speed ups of 5x to 100x, or more! GPUs are available with all device types(servers,desktops,laptops,tablets,mobile). Their power is harnessed using specialty programming languages, OpenCL, CUDA, WebCL and C++AMP, with parallel algorithms, Scan, Reduce and more...
