ACML (Library)


The AMD Core Math Library (ACML) incorporates BLAS, LAPACK and FFT routines, which are designed to be used by a wide range of software developers to obtain excellent performance from their applications running on AMD platforms. The highly optimized library contains numeric functions for mathematical, engineering, scientific and financial applications. Also provided by ACML are Fast scalar, vector, and array math transcendental library routines optimized for high performance on AMD Opteron processors and Random Number Generators.

Subject: [SHARCNET ACML] Pending Module Version Removals

Please note:  acml module versions 4.3.0, 5.1.0 and 5.2.0
will be removed from Sharcnet systems Dec 5.  Acml modules
with version numbers 4.4.0 and 5.3.0 will remain installed
for use instead.  Be advised however that ACML has reached EOF
(End-Of-Life) therefore alternative libraries should be used
to achieve optimal performance on future newer hardware. See
where possible options for replacement are summarized here
