Background:

T
ypically, developers would download the AMD APP SDK installer package, which included not only the APP SDK but all the samples as well. Over the years, the APP SDK installer package has continued to grow in size as more and more samples were added. Today the typical package size exceeds 100 MB and even with increasing internet speeds, it requires significant time to download. Additionally, downloading such large packages is even more problematic in areas where the internet infrastructure is less advanced (slower internet speeds) and is often coupled with download retries due to the frustrating lack of error recovery.

Feedback from the developer community suggested that AMD separate the APP SDK and samples to provide the ability to download the APP SDK and only samples of interest to projects. The net effect would greatly reduce both download time and download retries.

Unified Installer:

A
MD has listened to the suggestion by the developer community and is proud to announce the availability of the AMD Unified Installer, which is a Web-based installer that allows you to select just the components you need to download and install on your system. It provides access to both the AMD APP SDK and the Beta version of the new AMD Media SDK.

Samples Browser

Since AMD provides more than 100 code samples to jump-start your project, we’ve made it easier to navigate these samples in order to find the right sample for your project by creating a web-based sample browser. The new web-based sample browser allows to you easily review samples for both the APP SDK and the new Media SDK and then selectively download only those samples that match your requirements or area of interest.

Traditional APP SDK Installer

If, however, you would still like to download the full AMD APP SDK package or perhaps previous versions of the APP SDK package, they are still available on either the APP SDK download page or the APP SDK Archive download page.

Download & Feedback

Download the unified installer from the table below, and be sure to visit the developer forums with your tips, comments, questions and feedback.
