OpenCL 2.0 Demystified

AMD provides full support for the OpenCL™ 2.0 specification, as well as support for some optional features like Fine Grain Shared Virtual Memory. There are a lot of new and powerful capabilities in this version of the standard. We know that programming for a new API and new capabilities can be daunting. If you’d like to learn what you can do, and how to do it, check out the OpenCL 2.0 Demystified blog series. AMD engineers walk you through the code and show you how features like Shared Virtual Memory, Pipes, Device Enqueue and many more actually work. Read the blogs, and learn what you can do. Happy Coding!

Everything You Always Wanted to Know About HSA*

What is Heterogeneous System Architecture? Why does it matter? In this whitepaper, Insight 64 Research Fellow Nathan Brookwood explains why, even if HSA doesn’t entirely change your life, it will change the way you use your desktop, laptop, tablet, smartphone and the cloud.

The Heterogeneous System Architecture: It's (Not) All About The GPU

The use of GPUs in computation intensive tasks has had an ever increasing impact across all platforms. At the same time, GPUs have several properties that make it a challenge to unlock their full benefit in many real-world applications. The HSA was created to address many of these current shortcomings while providing a great update for already established software models. Learn more in this GPGPU7 keynote by Paul Blinzer, chairperson of the System Architecture Workgroup of the HSA Foundation.

    Will it be APP SDK 3.0 Not Beta or APP SDK 3.1 Beta?I'd imagine with all the HSA and APU stuff the SDK software team at AMD must be pretty busy.
