No so good cause they make errors even into hype blogs! Accordingly to blog there is Cat 12.12 where we can expect bugfixes... well, hope this typo will not become sad reality...

New SDK available for download from APP SDK webpage. New drivers aren't there yet, but hope they make it sometime during the afternoon.

Note that the link is currently wrong for the Windows 64 bit installer, and points to APP 2.5. If you want the beta, just modify the link to 2.6 instead of 2.5... or click here

Not sure if it's because I'm still using Catalyst 11.11 but now I'm using SDK 2.6, AMD APP KernelAnalyzer reports the same Compiler statistics no matter what Function you select...

AMD APP Kernel Analyzer uses runtime installed, which ships with drivers and not with the SDK. It might work if you manually replace runtime binaries with those found inside the SDK, but keep in mind that this is not standard procedure.

Hm, offline compilation crashes for me. Some kernels always crash when building, others just crash when building for the new targets (e.g Tahiti). 

 

I guess I should wait until 11.12 comes out...

yes, offline compilations is broken. it either crashes during compilation or the produced binary output fails after reading with clBuildProgram() -11

Patience is a virtue my friends... (although I myself do have the url of 11-12 linux drivers in a browser, and check if the drivers are there, even if the webpage isn't updated yet)

If most bugs would be fixed, OCL 1.2 conformance be introduced, and perhaps a few new features be implemented (Direct GPU-GPU transfer, or GDS/GWS, ...) that would be a real nice treat before the holidays.
