AMD CodeAnalyst Performance Analyzer is a free download that works great with Microsoft® Visual Studio®. Frank Swehosky, 10 year CodeAnalyst team veteran, gives a personal introduction to how CodeAnalyst integrates with Microsoft Visual Studio 2010 and gives some insight into the type of performance analysis you can do with native C/C++ code and managed code.

What the AMD Fusion Fund Means for Developers What the AMD Fusion Fund Means for Developers

AMD recently announced the creation of a new program designed to accelerate the ecosystem and software applications that take advantage of AMD Fusion APUs – Accelerated Processing Units. How would you architect your software differently, knowing that the GPU could handle some of the general purpose computing tasks and free up the CPU to do more? Perhaps you're on the bleeding edge and already parallelize your code to do exactly that. Either way, you'll want to check out the AMD Fusion Fund.

AMD becomes Gold Level Sponsor of the Apache Software Foundation AMD Becomes Gold Level Sponsor of the Apache Software Foundation

This month AMD adds to its support of key Open Source Software communities by becoming a Gold Level Sponsor of the Apache Software Foundation (ASF). AMD has been actively supporting the Linux®, GCC, Xen, and KVM communities for the last several years, contributing code and optimizations to help take advantage of the innovative hardware features in our CPU and GPU technologies. We're expanding that effort to encompass technologies further up the software stack, namely the open source middleware and applications that help form the foundation of cloud computing and "big data" problem solving.

New Round-to-Even Technique for Large-scale Data and Its Application in Integer Scaling New Round-to-Even Technique for Large-scale Data and Its Application in Integer Scaling

This article outlines a new method for round-to-even rounding with large-scale data processing and illustrates its application with a typical computational problem in which two integer numbers are added and scaled down (division by another integer), rendering a floating-pointing number that needs to be rounded. The new technique can be implemented through streaming single-instruction/multiple-data (SIMD) extensions (SSE) instructions, and can be expanded for the general division (no scaling) case. We compare results between traditional implementation and our optimized version running on x86 and x86-64 architectures using C++ on a Microsoft® Windows® platform.

Just Released: GPUPerfAPI v2.3 Just Released: GPUPerfAPI v2.3

GPUPerfAPI is AMD's library for accessing GPU performance counters on ATI Radeon graphics cards. It is used by GPU PerfStudio 2 and the ATI Stream Profiler and is now available to third party developers who wish to incorporate it within their own applications. GPUPerfAPI supports DirectX10, DirectX11, OpenGL, and OpenCL applications.
