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!
