OpenCL™ Zone

Open Computing Language allows programmers to preserve their expensive source code investment and easily target multi-core CPUs, GPUs, and APUs. It's easy to get started working with AMD and partner tools such as AMD APP SDK, CodeXL, AMD Compute Libraries (ACL), BOLT and more.

Graphics & Game Development

Maximize your GPU knowledge with these graphics development tools that include: AMD Compress, GPU PerfStudio 2, AMD FIrePro SDK, AMD Radeon™ SDK, AMD GPU Services Library, GPUPerfAPI and more.

CPU Development

These high-performance tools and libraries help you create simpler, more portable and maintainable code: CodeXL, Open64 SDK, SimNow Simulator, Tools for DMTF DASH, x86 Open64 Compiler Suite, ACL, APML and more.

Media SDK

Leverage the AMD platform for multimedia processing. The SDK may be used in developing video conferencing, wireless display, remote desktop, video editing, transcode and playback applications.

Open Source Zone

Long live open source! Read about some of the coolest open source tools that use heterogeneous computing, HPC and OpenCL™ technologies, including the new AMD Compute Libraries and much more.

Heterogeneous Computing

Work with powerful tools and libraries, like AMD Compute Libraries (ACL), CodeXL and AMD APP SDK, that let you fully optimize the performance of your CPU, GPU and APU.

These tools have reached end of life and are no longer supported but are available for download without warranty if you need them.

Heterogeneous computing is the future, and assuming most software developers can be made to recognize the benefits and program to take advantage of the new chips, I’m all for it. When additional CPU cores and smaller process nodes stop making the cut, heterogeneous computing is where the industry will look for performance gains.
