Welcome to AMD Developer News July 2015 | Previous Issues
Collaboration and Open Source at AMD: Blender Cycles
AMD contributed a series of OpenCL™ kernels to the Cycles open source project. The result of this non-trivial work? A faster and more stable product, free for everyone. It's a win-win-win.

Efficient Breadth-first Search on Heterogeneous Processors
Recent research has developed a compelling "hybrid" BFS solution for CPUs, which uses both top-down and bottom-up algorithms. What happens when you implement this searching algorithm on an APU or GPU?

Collaboration and Open Source at AMD: LibreOffice
AMD is a real believer in open source projects and what developers can do when they collaborate. AMD engineers wrote OpenCL™ kernels and contributed them to the code base for LibreOffice. The goal? Accelerate the math behind spreadsheets. So how much acceleration did we get? The results are impressive.

Developing for DirectX® 12 or Vulkan™ can offer significant performance boosts but sometimes requires a new approach to graphics programming. Come see us at GDC Europe August 3-4 for a presentation that will show you how to work with the new APIs.

An Overview of Next-Gen Graphics APIs at SIGGRAPH 2015,
Los Angeles, CA
Learn how to take advantage of next-gen APIS like DirectX12 and Vulkan at Siggraph 2015 on Tuesday, August 11. This course provides an overview of switching from current to next-gen APIs, and includes a chance to ask questions of a panel of spec writers and game developers.

This fully-revised edition by noted experts teaches OpenCL and parallel programming for complex systems that may include a variety of device architectures: multi-core CPUs, GPUs, and fully-integrated Accelerated Processing Units (APUs). It includes the latest enhancements in OpenCL 2.0 and much more. Best of all, it's out of pre-order status and available now!

A "Catalyst" for Windows® 10 and DirectX®
The free AMD Catalyst™ 15.7 driver update includes support for Windows® 10 and DirectX® 12 and unleashes even more performance!
