Start using OpenCL™ 2.0 today – AMD is providing a sneak peek that works on GPUs and APUs.


We are still working on the beta SDK which will be available soon.  In the meantime, we have example code ready for the adventurous among you, so you can start learning some of the ins and outs.


We are creating a series of blog posts, called OpenCL 2.0 Demystified - One Feature at a Time.  The posts have insights, code snippets, and complete samples that you can download. We are making some serious example code available for you to study and play with.


Review the first blog, on how shared virtual memory can make your code simpler and more efficient.  We have planned several posts highlighting various features of OpenCL 2.0.  So keep your eyes open – we’ll make announcements here to let you know when they are available.


All these links are available directly in the blog.  Make sure you have supported hardware (there’s a complete list on the driver download page).  Play with the examples.  Maybe write your own OpenCL 2.0 samples.  And share your observations with the community here.  With this sneak peek at the example code, when the full release is available you’ll be ahead of the curve.
