THE NEXT GENERATION OF WORKSTATION GRAPHICS Select language:
OPENCL™ FOR HPC   >   OVERVIEW  |   FEATURES

OpenCL™ is the first truly open and royalty-free programming standard for general-purpose computations on heterogeneous systems. OpenCL™ allows programmers to preserve source code investment and easily target multi-core CPUs, GPUs and APUs. Applications accelerated with OpenCL™ can access the combined processing power of a computer or server’s GPU and CPU or APU cores under a single unified platform – a game-changing development for HPC users.


NOW AVAILABLE: LINUX
AND MICROSOFT WINDOWS
7 AND 8.1 DRIVERS WITH
OPENCL™ 2.0 SUPPORT ON
SELECT AMD FIREPRO™
PRODUCTS.


Developed in an open standards committee with representatives from major industry vendors, OpenCL™ gives users what they have been demanding: a cross-vendor, non-proprietary solution for accelerating their applications on CPU, GPUs and APUs. AMD, an early supporter of OpenCL™ and leading innovator and provider of high-performance CPUs, APUs and GPUs, is uniquely positioned in this industry to offer a complete acceleration platform for OpenCL™.


NEW FOR OPENCL™ 2.0

With OpenCL™ 2.0, new features found in this version gives GPUs more freedom to do the work they are designed to do.

SHARED VIRTUAL MEMORY
Enables host and device kernels to directly share complex pointer-based data structures, eliminating explicit transfers between the host and devices while increasing programming flexibility.



GENERIC ADDRESS SPACE
Enables functions to be written without named address spaces which increases flexibility and saves time by eliminating the need for multiple functions to be written.



NESTED PARALLELISM
Updated for improved programmability and increased application efficiency.
