AMD x86 Open64: Tips from the Engineering Team on Optimization Flags

AMD x86 Open64: Tips from the Engineering Team on Optimization Flags
HotItem   
The x86 Open64 Compiler Suite is a high performance, production quality code generation tool designed for high performance parallel computing workloads. AMD Developer Inside Track went directly to the engineers who work on this compiler to get the scoop on what features are unique to this compiler and what optimization flags could really make a difference in your project.

Just Released: ATI Stream SDK 2.0 Production Release Just Released: ATI Stream SDK 2.0 Production Release

ATI Stream SDK 2.0 is the first production SDK for both AMD GPUs and x86 CPUs. This release supports a wide range of ATI graphics processors, including the new ATI RadeonT HD 5970, and provides support for OpenCLT ICD (Installable Client Driver), atomic functions for 32-bit integers, a Microsoft® Visual Studio® 2008-integrated ATI Stream Profiler performance analysis tool, and other robust features. Preview support for upcoming features include OpenCL and Microsoft DirectX® 10 interoperability, and double-precision floating point basic arithmetic in OpenCL C kernels.

ATI Stream OpenCLT Technical Overview Video Series ATI Stream OpenCLT Technical Overview Video Series

The ATI Stream OpenCL Technical Overview Video Series provides ATI Stream developers with an overview of the OpenCL application programming interface (API) and OpenCL C programming language. Justin Hensley, a Senior Member of Technical Staff in the Office of the CTO - Advanced Technology Initiatives, walks you through what OpenCL is and why it was designed the way it is. He goes into the details about the OpenCL platform and memory models, and shows you how to allocate resources and execute kernels. Finally, Justin describes OpenCL C, the language derived from C99 that is used to describe compute kernels for all processors in your system, ranging from x86 multi-core CPUs as well as AMD GPUs.

Cross Vendor Migration: ISA Issues in Live Migration Cross Vendor Migration: ISA Issues in Live Migration

Virtualization enables live migration, the ability to move a running guest from one physical machine to another with little or no disruption to the guest or its users. Live migration allows various load-balancing and high-availability techniques to be implemented by the hypervisor and datacenter management software. This white paper focuses on the instruction set architecture (ISA) issues involved in cross-vendor live migration between Intel® and AMD CPUs.

Just Released: ATI Stream Profiler Just Released: ATI Stream Profiler

ATI Stream Profiler is a performance analysis tool to analyze OpenCLT programs on ATI RadeonT graphics cards. This tool, which is fully integrated into Microsoft® Visual Studio® 2008, enables you to measure the execution time of an OpenCL kernel, query the hardware performance counters on the ATI Radeon graphics card, display the memory traffic from and to the GPU, compare multiple runs (sessions) of the same or different programs, store the profile data for each run in a csv file, then display the IL and ISA (hardware disassembly) code of the OpenCL kernel.
