AMD to open-source more of Radeon software, provide more hardware documentation

AMD promises to open-source parts of the software and provide more documentation for hardware

On X (formerly known as Twitter), AMD has promised to open-source portions of its software. 

The ROCm (Radeon Open Compute PlatforM) software stack provides an API for GPU programmers that supports various computing algorithms for HPC, AI and OpenCL. The interest in ROCm has grown substantially last year due to the growth in popularity for generative AI. AMD has been adding more support for its ROCm platform, starting with consumer grade Radeon RX 7900 XTX, 7900 XT and later RX 7900 GRE.

AMD has announced plans to address current concerns about documentation for its hardware, particularly for third-party companies looking to sell AMD hardware for compute purposes. These companies have faced issues that require either direct AMD support or comprehensive documentation, which has not been readily available.

In addition, AMD has revealed intentions to open source more of its software stack in the near future. Specific details regarding which components will be open sourced and the timeline for this release have not been disclosed yet.

To speed up communication and updates regarding these efforts, AMD has introduced an issue tracker to gather feedback and provide regular updates. Users interested in tracking the progress of AMD’s open-sourcing efforts for both software and hardware can find further information on the designated GitHub page.
