PRESS RELEASE

AMD Core Math Library

The Numerical Algorithms Group (NAG) and AMD have developed a new version of the AMD Core Math Library (ACML).

ACML is a mathematical and statistical components library for high performance computing, particularly for users of 64-bit AMD chip systems. The library provides a suite of Basic Linear Algebra (BLAS) and LAPACK routines developed specifically high-performance computing. It also features comprehensive sets of fast fourier transforms and random number generators.

Version 4.0 provides include support for AMD Family 10h (Barcelona) processors together with the latest LAPACK routines.
