A Defining Moment for Heterogeneous Computing
Introducing the AMD Boltzmann initiative. This is a suite of software tools designed to dramatically reduce barriers to GPU computing on AMD FirePro™ graphics. The tools include a new heterogeneous compute compiler for C++ programming, a Linux® driver, and the HIP tool that ports CUDA runtime APIs into C++.
