    Very good for the community but I doubt if that's profitable.

        As the underdog, AMD benefits from opening up as much tech as possible to try and undermine NVidia's entrenched advantage. NVidia has a huge advantage in complex DX11 driver quality? Make a thinner driver layer that moves responsibility to the apps undermining nvidias lead. Nvidia has GSync? Release freesync. Nvidia has gameworks? Release GPUOpen. Good enough and open usually beats great and closed.

          Might not be profitable but sure it improves AMD mindshare amongst developers

            It might not be directly profitable however if third party developers start to contribute enhancements back into GPUOpen it will speed development and reduce development costs. Sounds like a win for both AMD and the developers using these libraries.

              There is a market for open-source, it's just not "traditional". having to open source this gain a lot of consumer trust and it gets developed/supported longer which adds to the trust, closed source only is a short-term gain. If you have a big company then you are in it for the long run, not the short term.. unless you just try to cripple the competition and get away with it.. then of course it's on a different field of exercises.

                  Be nice if they had any Vulkan info up, It's all dx12/windows from what I can see.

                    We are also in the process of pushing the first Boltzmann developer preview out - kernel, thunk, runtime, HIP and HCC, with Fiji support.

                    Probably a couple of hours before all those repos are active.
