Microsoft Releases Preview Version of ParallelFX

“Soma” Somasegar, chief of Microsoft’s Developer Division, wrote in his blog today that the company has made a “preview” version of the ParallelFX (Parallel Extensions to the .NET Framework) library available for download. ParallelFX provides a programming model for data and task parallelism on multicore/multiprocessor hardware.

Writes Somasegar:

Although we understand the shift to parallel computing is a gradual road ahead for our whole industry, we are excited by the prospect and believe that the ParallelFX library is a large step in the right direction.

Links to the ParallelFX download and a whitepaper on the shift to manycore processing are inside Somasegar’s blog post.
