AMD Beyond3D Coding Challenge!

Check out the full details on Beyond3D.com:

It is our pleasure to introduce Travelling with style, a contest which seeks to arm you, the contestants, with knowledge and familiarity with nice and friendly tools whilst offering the promise of juicy prizes for the best of the best.

The API of choice is C++ AMP as implemented in Microsoft Visual Studio 2012. It's so lovable that we just had to reach out to the fine gentlemen at Microsoft, who graciously accepted to be part of the adventure - thanks guys!

Of course, this solves one third of the equation...we do need some hardware to flip bits in accordance to your AMPed up commands. Luckily AMD jumped into the position of hardware partner for the contest.

Given that you gentlemen are deviously clever developers, we could not harvest any of the low hanging fruits (begone, dense algebra!). We wanted a somewhat equivocal task, that forced thought to be invested in the design and potentially allowed for the optimal solution to be a heterogeneous one, as opposed to a purely CPU or GPU one. Which brought us, to the somewhat famous, somewhat old, definitely challenging Travelling Salesman Problem.

The contest will be open between the 12th of June 2012 and the 31st of August 2012. No submissions shall be accepted after the 31st of August, and winners will be announced in the 2nd week of September. We wish you good luck, and may your paths be short!
