Tools & SDKs

AMD Optimizing C/C++ Compiler — The  AOCC compiler system is a high performance, production quality code generation tool. The  AOCC environment provides the developer the essential choices when building and optimizing C, C++, and Fortran applications targeting 32-bit and 64-bit Linux® platforms.

AMD μProf —AMD μProf is a suite of powerful tools that help developers optimize software for performance or power. AMD μProf ’s CPU profiler helps to identify and analyze performance hotspots within an application, library, driver or kernel module. It’s Power profiler provides valuable information on energy characteristics of the application or process, library, kernel module running on CPU, APU or discrete-GPU.

Spack Spack is an open source project that offers a package management framework and tool for installing complex scientific software.  AMD supports the AMD Optimized CPU Compilers and Libraries (AOCC and AOCL ) with Spack packages.  AMD also supports Spack packages for commonly used HPC benchmarks and a growing catalogue of scientific, open-source applications with recommended command-line directives using AOCC and AOCL.

SimNow™ Simulator — SimNow™ Simulator is an AMD64 technology-compatible x86 platform simulator for AMD’s family of processors. It is designed to provide an accurate model of a computer system from the program, OS, and programmer’s point of view. SimNow requires AMD Athlon™ 64 or Opteron™.

Tools for DMTF DASH — DASH (Desktop and mobile Architecture for System Hardware) is a client management standard released by the DMTF (Distributed Management Task Force). DASH is a web services based standard for secure out-of-band and remote management of desktops and mobile systems. Client systems that support out-of-band management help IT administrators perform tasks independent of the power state of the machine or the state of the operating system.

AMD Ryzen™ Master Monitoring SDK — The AMD RyzenTM Master Monitoring SDK is a public distribution that allows software developers to add processor and memory functions to their own utility in conjunction with AMD AM4 RyzenTM processor products. This SDK is the gold standard for reliable and relevant AMD RyzenTM processor metrics.

2nd gen EPYC I/O Power Management Utility – Utility for systems based on 2nd generation EPYC processors to disable I/O power management.

EPYCTM system management software (E-SMS)—EPYC™ system management software (E-SMS) stack comprises of kernel modules, user space libraries and tools to manage power, performance aspects via In-band and Out-of-band of the EPYC™ line of server CPUs from AMD.


AMD Optimizing CPU Libraries (AOCL) — AOCL are a set of numerical libraries tuned specifically for AMD EPYC™ processor family. They have simple interfaces to take advantage of latest hardware innovations. The tuned implementations of industry standard math libraries enable fast development of scientific and high-performance computing projects.

ZenDNN (Zen Deep Neural Network) – ZenDNN (Zen Deep Neural Network) Library accelerates deep learning inference applications on AMD CPUs. This library, which includes APIs for basic neural network building blocks optimized for AMD CPUs, targets deep learning application and framework developers with the goal of improving inference performance on AMD CPUs.
