in previous 2.3 you can find definitions of some functions like clCreateCounterAMD, clReadCounterAMD, clEnqueueRead/WriteCounter.

and now i saw new cl_ext_atomic_counters32/64. is this extension replacment for previous unreleased extension cl_amd_atomic_counters?

and if yes will they utilize GDS?
