Unluckily, I won't be able to attend the Meetup. I had to change my plans but I'll be blogging soon at ISN about interesting adventures around the world with the newest dual-core Intel Atom microprocessors. I'm sure we will have another Meetup in the near future and I'll be there. The interest in parallel programming with the newest Intel microarchitectures is growing really fast.
In fact, the 2nd Generation Intel Core Processor Family (Code Name Sandy Bridge) brings exciting opportunities for those willing to take full advantage of GPGPU. If you detect a Sandy Bridge CPU, it means that you have a CPU and a GPU, with a shared cache and Intel Turbo Boost Technology 2.0. I wrote a post about the improved Intel Turbo Boost Technology Monitor a few days ago.
It would be great to get detailed information about the new Intel tools to take full advantage of Sandy Bridge. I'm sure the Meetup will provide valuable information. In fact, I was going to travel 16 hours to be there. However, I had to talk about specific optimization techniques for the newest dual-core Intel Atom microprocessors and I was unable to make last minute changes to the schedule to attend the Meetup. It is Intel's fault. Intel is launching too many exciting products and I must help other in taking full advantage of the exciting capabilities of all these new products.
I missed the chance to be in this Meetup but I'll stay tuned with the new community members and authors on ISN. I'm sure the attendants will receive valuable information and they will be able to share experiences in the near future.
Don't forget to share your experiences in the Meetup.
