AMD tests its APP SDK on a wide range of systems to ensure that we are providing you with the best possible SDK from release to release. Below are a list of operating systems, compilers, cards, processors and drivers that our qualification teams have used to test the latest AMD APP release.  We recommend that you always update your drivers to use the latest versions available for your system.
The SDK may work on configurations that fall outside the list below. However, if your operating system, compiler, card, processor or driver is not listed below, we recommend that you modify your configuration to a supported configuration for the best possible APP programming experience.
