Furious.js JavaScript Library

JavaScript library for hardware-accelerated scientific computing
  • JavaScript tensor library similar to NumPy/SciPy
  • Asynchronous computations without excessive callbacks
  • Transparent offload of computations to Portable Native Client, Web Worker, WebCL or cloud server (via Web Sockets)

PeachPy: Portable Efficient Assembly Code-generation in High-level Python

Python Framework for Automating Development of High-Performance Assembly Kernels
  • Supports automatic register allocation
  • Provides stack frame management, including re-aligning of stack frame as needed
  • Generates versions of a function for different calling conventions from the same source (e.g. functions for Microsoft x64 ABI and System V x86-64 ABI can be generated from the same source)
  • Allows to define constants in the place where they are used (just like in high-level languages)
  • Tracks of instruction extensions used in the function.
  • Can multiplex multiple instruction streams (helpful for software pipelining)

Yeppp! High-performance library

Provides a collection of low-level functions optimized for modern processors
  • Library functions have multiple implementations, optimized for different processor architectures
  • The optimal function is chosen at run-time depending on the processor
  • Detects processor microarchitecture and instruction set extensions
  • Provides portable access to CPU cycle counter and high-resolution system timer
  • Available for Windows, Linux, Mac OS X, and Android
  • Supports x86, x86-64, ARM, MIPS, and PowerPC architectures
  • C and C++-compatible header files, and bindings for FORTRAN, Java and .Net/Mono
  • BSD license

Yeppp! CPUID for Android

Shows detailed information about the mobile CPU:
  • CPU architecture (ARM, x86, or MIPS)
  • CPU vendor (e.g. ARM, Qualcomm, Intel, MIPS)
  • CPU microarchitecture (e.g. ARM11, Cortex-A9, Atom, XBurst)
  • Minimum and maximum frequency
  • Number of logical cores
  • Supported instruction set extensions (e.g. NEON, VFPv4, SSSE3, MIPS3D)
  • Size of level-1, level-2, and level-3 caches.
