Advanced Micro Devices on Thursday released the updated AMD accelerated parallel processing (APP) software development kit (SDK) v2.3 with full support for the first AMD Fusion accelerated processing units (APUs), OpenCL 1.1 and AMD Radeon HD 6900-series graphics cores. The new SDK will allow software designers to utilize advantages of APUs as well as latest graphics processing units (GPUs).

AMD APP SDK v2.3 empowers software developers to write new applications that can take full advantage of the parallel processing power of heterogeneous computing platforms, such as those based on new AMD E-series and C-series APUs that combine a multi-core CPU and DirectX11-capable GPU on a single die. The new SDK also offers improved runtime performance and math libraries for OpenCL.

“When developers harness the power of parallel processing within our APU designs, they can fundamentally change the PC experience to help not only make it faster, but also to create new possibilities in software,” said John Taylor, director of client product and software marketing, AMD.

Improving OpenCL performance and programmability on AMD platforms is a key initiative for AMD, and this summer, AMD technical personnel, AMD executives, developers and partner companies will gather at the AMD Fusion Developer Summit to discuss industry standards including OpenCL, and to explore how to best optimize applications for heterogeneous computing. The inaugural AMD Fusion Developer Summit (AFDS) will be held June 13-16, 2011 in Bellevue, Washington. AFDS will gather developers, academics and emerging innovators to learn more about heterogeneous computing, APU technology, parallel processing and developer programs like the AMD Fusion Fund.
