Just Released:  AMD Accelerated Parallel Processing (APP) SDK v2.3 (formerly ATI Stream SDK) Just Released: AMD Accelerated Parallel Processing (APP) SDK v2.3 (formerly ATI Stream SDK)

The 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 DirectX®11-capable GPU on a single die. In addition to support for the first AMD Fusion APUs, the updated AMD APP SDK v2.3 offers full OpenCL™ 1.1 support, improved runtime performance and math libraries for OpenCL, and support for AMD Radeon™ HD 6900 Series graphics.

A Tutorial on Adding New Instructions to the Oracle® Java HotSpot™ Virtual Machine A Tutorial on Adding New Instructions to the Oracle® Java HotSpot™ Virtual Machine

Architecture-specific code generation changes for Java programs often require modifying the Java Virtual Machine (JVM) to support new target machine instructions or sequences of these instructions. This article discusses how to add this support to the Oracle® Java HotSpot Virtual Machine, using as a running example the addition of an instruction sequence for a floating-point conditional move optimization.

Now Available:  MainConcept™ OpenCL H.264/AVC Encoder SDK Beta Now Available: MainConcept™ OpenCL H.264/AVC Encoder SDK Beta

MainConcept recently released the MainConcept™ OpenCL™ H.264/AVC Encoder SDK Beta optimized for ATI FirePro™ professional graphics and AMD Radeon™ graphics from AMD. OpenCL encoding in combination with the AMD APP SDK speeds-up the time consuming task of converting video footage into the H.264/AVC format on various platforms and also reduces CPU utilization so that the computer can be used for other purposes while encoding.
