by earl, 5179 days agoIntel is heavily trying to push their "Threading Building Blocks" library for C++. Just yesterday, they announced the availibility of the now open-sourced Intel TBB 2.0 along with a dedicated website and an O'Reilly book. TBB 2.0 seems to support the three major OS platforms, all recent Intel processors going back to the P4 and three major C++ compilers (ICC, MSVC, GCC). I'll have to have a deeper look into it, but the mix of synchronization primitives, thread-safe datastructures, basic parallel algorithms e.g. reduce/scan and optimized memory allocators sure seems interesting. Comments on first-hand experiences are very welcome!
