Nvidia is wasting no opportunities to generate hype around its GPU computing efforts. In its latest GPGPU-related move, the company says it has released an OpenCL driver and software development kit to members of the OpenCL Early Access Program.
Nvidia claims it's giving developers a first peek at the software "to solicit early feedback in advance of a beta release which will be made available to all GPU Computing Registered Developers in the coming months." That sounds a tad behind schedule, though—the company told us last December that it was planning a beta OpenCL driver for the first quarter of 2009. A "full implementation" was supposed to follow this quarter.
The press release goes on to say that coders can sign up to become GPU Computing Registered Developers at www.nvidia.com/opencl. That address points to a "Page Not Found" warning right now, however. As far as we can tell, the actual signup form is up here on the Nvidia Developer Zone site.
