AMD will live stream the keynote presentations at the AMD Fusion Developer Summit (AFDS) 2012, June 12, 13 and 14. Keynote speakers include AMD senior management and technology leaders from Adobe, AMD, Cloudera, Gaikai, Microsoft, Penguin Computing and SRS Labs.
CAPS entreprise today announced that its HMPP directive-based compiler has added support for AMD’s GPU technology. Based on OpenACC and OpenHMPP directive-based programming model, HMPP compiler fully integrates data-parallel backend for OpenCL and will leverage the computing power of AMD GPU and APU devices.
Beginning with the AMD OpenCL™ APP SDK 2.6 availability back in December of 2011 AMD has been making available preview versions of both OpenCL™ 1.2 support and improved C++ support for both host side and kernel side coding.
National Science Foundation and AMD have funded a research over at North Carolina State University where engineers have successfully obtained an average of 21.4 percent more performance through improving the design of an fused processor.
AMD engineers were working towards making the processing capability of the company’s accelerated processing units (APUs) as accessible to programmers as the CPU is today using heterogeneous systems architecture (HSA)
Advanced Micro Devices said Thursday that from now on it would call its Fusion system architecture (FSA) as heterogeneous system architecture (HSA).
The AMD APP SDK v2.6 with OpenCL 1.1 support uses the OpenCL ICD (Installable Client Driver) as part of the software stack. Code written with beta releases of the ATI Stream SDK v2.0 requires changes to comply with the OpenCL ICD requirements.
Advanced Micro Devices said that making special-purpose GPU-based accelerators compatible with CPU sockets makes no sense. The approach proposed by AMD is vastly different from the one that is allegedly offered by its arch-rival, Intel.
Penguin Computing Deploys World’s First HPC Cluster Based on AMD Accelerated Processing Units at Sandia
Penguin Computing’s new Altus 2A00 Server Platform enables Sandia to leverage the benefits of the APU’s combined GPU-CPU architecture
