OpenCL™ is the first truly open and royalty-free programming standard for general-purpose computations on heterogeneous systems. Open Computing Language allows programmers to preserve their expensive source code investment and easily target multi-core CPUs, GPUs, and the new APUs. Developed in an open standards committee with representatives from major industry vendors, OpenCL™ gives users what they have been demanding: a cross-vendor, non-proprietary solution for accelerating their applications on CPU, GPUs and APUs. AMD, an early supporter of OpenCL™ and leading innovator and provider of high-performance CPUs and GPUs, is uniquely positioned in this industry to offer a complete acceleration platform for OpenCL™. Developer and technology partners have created several applications, libraries and technology demonstrations taking advantage of AMD Accelerated Parallel Processing acceleration, also abbreviated as “APP.”  Use the resources below to get started with OpenCL™ today.

Tools & SDKs

AMD OpenCL™ APP SDK - execute heterogeneously to accelerate many applications beyond just graphics

CodeXL – A comprehensive tool suite that includes powerful debugging, profiling, and static OpenCL™ kernel analysis capabilities

OpenCL™ 2.0 Functionality Preview — Download the OpenCL™ 1.2 beta preview driver  that gives you an early glimpse of the Shared Virtual Memory and Platform Atomics functionality of the recently ratified OpenCL™ 2.0 spec.

Legacy AMD OpenCL™ Tools — These tools have lived a long and fruitful life. Now discontinued but provided here without warranty as a convenience.

Libraries

Aparapi — An API for expressing data parallel workloads in Java™

clMath — OpenCL™ software libraries containing FFT and BLAS functions

Bolt — An STL compatible library for creating accelerated data parallel applications.
