Just Released: ATI Stream SDK v2.0-beta4 with GPU + CPU support for OpenCL™ 1.0 Just Released: ATI Stream SDK v2.0-beta4 with GPU + CPU support for OpenCL™ 1.0

AMD proudly announces the first complete OpenCL™ development platform with the release of the fourth beta of the ATI Stream SDK v2.0. This release is certified fully compliant with OpenCL 1.0 by the Khronos Group and is supported on a wide range of AMD GPUs as well as any x86 multi-core CPU supporting SSE3. With this new OpenCL platform, developers can now tap into AMD’s unique offering of high-performance CPU plus GPU technology to create applications that run the way they were meant to be run, on all the available processors in the system.

Just Released: AMD LibM 2.0 Just Released:  AMD LibM 2.0

AMD LibM is a software library containing a collection of basic math functions optimized for x86-64 processor based machines. It provides many routines from the list of standard C99 math functions. This library is advantageous for programmers who want better accuracy and performance from their math functions than what their compiler can provide.

How to use ACML with different versions of GCC/GFORTRAN How to use ACML with different versions of GCC/GFORTRAN

A very common question we receive through the ACML support channels is how to use ACML with different versions of GCC/GFORTRAN. Since the ACML team does not have the resources to provide a current version of ACML built with every possible GCC version, we have to choose which GCC version to build with. Here are the steps for building GCC versions in ways that are known to work properly for ACML. These steps are for a 64-bit build.
