Amd App Sdk V2 8 Windows 64 Exe



How to Download and Install AMD APP SDK v2.8 for Windows 64-bit




AMD APP SDK is a set of tools and libraries that enable developers to create and run applications using OpenCL on AMD GPUs and CPUs. AMD APP SDK v2.8 was released in 2013 and supports OpenCL 1.2. However, AMD has discontinued the APP SDK and removed it from its official website. So how can you download and install AMD APP SDK v2.8 for Windows 64-bit?




Amd App Sdk V2 8 Windows 64 Exe



In this article, we will show you two methods to get AMD APP SDK v2.8 for Windows 64-bit: one is to use a mirror link from Github[^1^], and the other is to use an alternative SDK from GPUOpen[^2^]. We will also show you how to build and run a sample OpenCL program using Visual Studio.


Method 1: Download AMD APP SDK v2.8 from Github




One way to get AMD APP SDK v2.8 for Windows 64-bit is to use a mirror link from Github[^1^]. This link was posted by a user on Stack Overflow[^3^] who claimed that it is not fake and that it works for him. However, we cannot guarantee the authenticity or safety of this link, so use it at your own risk.


To download AMD APP SDK v2.8 from Github, follow these steps:


  • Go to https://github.com/ghostlander/AMD-APP-SDK/releases and scroll down to the release v2.9.1.



  • Under Assets, find the file AMD-APP-SDK-v2.8.1-Windows-64.7z and click on it to download it.



  • Extract the downloaded file using 7-Zip or any other archive utility.



  • Run the setup.exe file inside the extracted folder and follow the installation wizard.



  • Choose a destination folder for the SDK (the default is C:\Program Files (x86)\AMD APP) and click Next.



  • Select the components you want to install (the default is all) and click Next.



  • Click Install to start the installation process.



  • Click Finish when the installation is complete.



Method 2: Download OCL SDK from GPUOpen




Another way to get AMD APP SDK v2.8 for Windows 64-bit is to use an alternative SDK from GPUOpen[^2^]. GPUOpen is a website that provides open source software tools and libraries for AMD GPUs. One of them is OCL SDK, which is a lightweight OpenCL SDK that supports OpenCL 2.0 and newer GPUs.


To download OCL SDK from GPUOpen, follow these steps:


  • Go to https://github.com/GPUOpen-LibrariesAndSDKs/OCL-SDK/releases and find the latest release (the current one is v0.9).



  • Under Assets, find the file OCL_SDK_Light_AMD.exe and click on it to download it.



  • Run the downloaded file and follow the installation wizard.



  • Choose a destination folder for the SDK (the default is C:\Program Files\OCL_SDK_Light) and click Next.



  • Select the components you want to install (the default is all) and click Next.



  • Click Install to start the installation process.



  • Click Finish when the installation is complete.



How to Build and Run a Sample OpenCL Program Using Visual Studio




After installing either AMD APP SDK v2.8 or OCL SDK from GPUOpen, you can build and run a sample OpenCL program using Visual Studio. Here we will use Visual Studio 2019 as an example, but you can use any other version that supports C++.
