AMD announced the availability of the AMD APP SDK 2.8 and the AMD CodeXL unified tool suite for GPGPU computing acceleration.
AMD (NYSE: AMD) today announced availability of the AMD APP SDK 2.8 and the AMD CodeXL unified tool suite to provide developers the tools and resources needed to accelerate applications with AMD accelerated processing units (APUs) and graphics processing units (GPUs). The APP SDK 2.8 and CodeXL tool suite provides access to code samples, white papers, libraries, and tools to leverage the processing power of heterogeneous compute with OpenCL™, C++, DirectCompute and more.

“With CodeXL and APP SDK 2.8, our highest performing SDK to date which leaps past the competition in performance on standard benchmarks1, AMD continues to empower developers with the resources they need for greater performance and power efficient applications,” said Manju Hegde, corporate vice president, Heterogeneous Applications and Developer Solutions, AMD. “From today’s ultraportable mobile solutions to the highest performing supercomputers, our latest tools and solutions help developers more easily leverage the power of heterogeneous computing and take greater advantage of the compute capabilities of AMD’s processing solutions.”

AMD APP SDK 2.8 featuring AMD’s new template library, codename “Bolt”
The APP SDK 2.8 includes dozens of new and improved samples for OpenCL™, Aparapi and C++ AMP that deliver significantly faster performance than APP SDK 2.7 – up to 2.3x faster2 on average in nine key benchmarks. The APP SDK 2.8 also includes a preview version of AMD’s new open source C++ template library, codename “Bolt.” “Bolt” is aimed at making it easier to utilize the inherent performance and power efficiency of heterogeneous computing while reducing lines-of-code with a single code path for GPU and CPU programming. “Bolt’s” productivity-oriented development environment enables developers to get superior performance on today’s heterogeneous compute platforms, and can help increase performance and reduce power consumption with the exact same code on future Heterogeneous System Architecture (HSA) compliant platforms.

For complete details on APP SDK 2.8 features, capabilities and support, along with “Bolt” architectural and how-to details, visit the AMD Developer blog or download the APP SDK 2.8 from AMD Developer Central. A member of AMD’s technical staff will also provide an introduction to the powerful capabilities of “Bolt” during a live webinar on Tuesday, December 11. To register, visit: http://bit.ly/StQa4X.

AMD CodeXL unified developer tool suite
The CodeXL tool suite provides a foundation for software developers and ISVs to enter a new era of parallel programming by harnessing the compute power of AMD’s high-performance central processing units (CPUs), GPUs and APUs across a wide array of computing platforms. CodeXL combines new features that enable developers to get the most performance out of AMD processors, including comprehensive GPU debugging, GPU and CPU profiling, static OpenCL™ kernel analysis and a standalone user interface on Windows® and Linux for enhanced accessibility and navigation. As a result, developers can bring to life solutions with amazingly fast run-times, long battery life and smooth playback for leading software applications.
