Recently, the open source OpenCL (Open Compute Language) has become much more popular. In fact, Evans Data Corp. says it now ranks as the second most popular HPC application development tool.
In order to encourage the further growth of OpenCL, AMD is working on a number of related tools. They include gDEbugger, AMD Code Analyst, an LLVM extension, a kernel analyzer and an application profiler. In addition, the company is producing college course materials related to the language as well.
