3D-Tech News Around The Web / AMD APP SDK 3.0 Released
« on: August 27, 2015, 05:12:59 AM »
...AMD APP SDK 3.0 adds support for Windows® 10 as well as AMD’s latest 6th generation AMD A-series processors (code-named Carrizo), Radeon™ R9 series graphics cards (code-named Fiji) and FirePro™ W8100 and W9100 series graphics cards. OpenCL 2.0 provides several improvements to the programming model that make it much easier to tap into the potential of AMD’s latest GPUs.  Notably, Shared Virtual Memory (SVM) allows you to share data-objects that include pointers between the CPU and GPU. This programming construct has long been available on multi-core CPUs, and is now available for AMD GPUs.  Sharing memory with pointer-based data structures between GPU and CPU devices greatly simplifies the steps involved in enlisting the GPU for compute acceleration.  Also new with OpenCL 2.0 is Device Enqueue (the ability for the GPU device to initiate compute tasks) and support for Generic address space.  These features open up a much more powerful programming model for compute kernels.

Today’s build is based off Unity 5.1.0f3 and comes with the ability to export to the following runtimes:
 
  • Linux, Mac, Windows Standalone
  • WebGL
  • WebPlayer
  • Android
  • Tizen
  • SamsungTV
System Requirements
  • 64-bit Ubuntu 12.04 or newer (just like our player, the editor will run on most ‘modern’ 64-bit Linux distributions, but official support is only provided for 64-bit Ubuntu 12.04 or newer)
  • Modern Nvidia, AMD, or Intel graphics card with vendor-supported graphics drivers

It has been exciting times in the math libraries group here at AMD. We recently released ACL Beta1 and a new open-source clSparse library. To keep the excitement going, I would like to talk a little bit about the performance of our clFFT library. clFFT is not new. It has been popular with our users over the past couple of years.
Since many of you are interested in the performance of clFFT, I think you’ll like the information given in this blog. I am providing charts to highlight:
 
  • Performance improvement in v2.6.1 (released as part of ACL Beta 1) over prior versions
  • Competitive performance of clFFT on AMD GPU against cuFFT on NVIDIA GPU
Performance Improvements
Over Previous Versions One of the improvements is in real transforms. Real-input discrete Fourier transforms have the advantage of requiring approximately half the compute and storage of an equal size complex transform. On the other hand, the “1 + n/2” storage of real transforms causes alignment and branching issues when computing on the GPU. Even with these factors, the library gets good efficiency and performance.
