AMD goes open source with performance library

Advanced Micro Devices Inc. is making its performance library available as open-source code, which should help developers build multithreaded applications for x86 machines.

The three-year-old library contains more than 3,200 software routines that focus on specific functions, such as handling audio and video data, according to Margaret Lewis, director of commercial solutions at AMD. This is the first time that AMD has released a proprietary library set and released it as open source.
