AMD has released an update to its CodeXL unified tool suite for developers. CodeXL is AMD’s primary developer tool for generating detailed information about the real-world performance of AMD Central Processing Units (CPUs), Accelerated Processing Units (APUs) and Graphics Processing Units (GPUs).

AMD CodeXL version 1.6 provides GPU profiling capabilities and API-level debugging for OpenCL 2.0 applications. CodeXL 1.6 also introduces a new advanced tool for profiling APU power consumption, which enables developers to reduce the power requirements of their application.

AMD has also released a beta version of the AMD APP SDK 3.0 with OpenCL 2.0 support. AMD APP SDK 3.0 contains sample code illustrating how to use each of the major new features of OpenCL 2.0.
