AOCC Compiler suite
The AOCC compiler system is a high performance, production quality code generation tool. The AOCC environment provides various options to developers when building and optimizing C, C++, and Fortran applications targeting 32-bit and 64-bit Linux® platforms. The AOCC compiler system offers a high level of advanced optimizations, multi-threading and processor support that includes global optimization, vectorization, inter-procedural analyses, loop transformations, and code generation. AMD also provides highly optimized libraries, which extract the optimal performance from each x86 processor core when utilized. The AOCC Compiler Suite simplifies and accelerates development and tuning for x86 applications.
- Targeting few fixes in Flang Fortran compiler enabling better Flang alpha testing
- AOCC v1.1 migrated to LLVM 6.0 release (llvm.org, 8th Mar)
- Includes the support for retpolines(from LLVM 6.0) to mitigate “branch target injection” (variant #2) of the “Spectre” speculative side channels described by Project Zero and the Spectre paper
- Introducing Flang as an experimental Fortran frontend in addition to existing stable and supported DragonEgg Fortran frontend. Refer to Flang (alpha) – the Fortran compiler documentation for more details
Note: AOCC compiler binaries are suitable for Linux systems having glibC version 2.17 and above only.
Resources and Technical Support
AOCC is a well-supported compiler suite. You can get help from the AOCC user community or get a 1×1 support, under NDA, from the AMD compiler support. (see process below)
Submit a support case (needs login)
A dedicated expert can provide you a 1×1 support, advice or help debug an issue over the private web channel. You need NDA with AMD and AMD-SSO login. Please read the AOCC Technical Support Agreement before submitting a support case here.
