Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
Praise for GPU Pro:
Any professional programmer in the field will find something of interest in this volume. I’m thrilled to see that this collection is in color—it’s about time! A wide range of topics are covered, from global illumination to image processing to mobile devices. I particularly like the fact that the book doesn’t go the scholarly researcher route; the articles are written in a straightforward way to help with implementation of the idea, and code is often provided.
—Eric Haines, co-author of Real-Time Rendering, February 2010

I recently started reading GPU Pro and it is outstanding! I love the full color and syntax highlighting!
—Patrick Cozzi, Virtual Globe and Terrain Rendering blog, June 2010
