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.

Unlocking the Full Potential of the GPU with Asynchronous Shaders

Have you ever wondered how to be in two places at once? Well, we haven’t quite solved the cloning problem yet, but we can show you how to do two things at once, using asynchronous shaders in DirectX® 12 and Vulkan™ in this whitepaper.
