AMD Rolling Out New Website Area For Zen Software Studio

For those making use of AMD's Optimizing C/C++/Fortran compilers, ZenNN library, profiling software, and various other CPU-based software resources for EPYC and Ryzen processors, AMD is in the process of rolling out a new area on the website for highlighting these Zen Software Studio assets.

I was informed today that AMD has been establishing a new area under the umbrella for their Zen Software Studio projects and in turn beginning to phase out the legacy area. At the moment the content is identical while more noticeable improvements are expected to begin gradually rolling out soon.

The new Zen Software Studio location is (hopefully they end up having just redirect there, since the legacy address is much easier to remember...). Once they further refine this new AMD Zen Software Studio umbrella, hopefully it will make it easier for developers/users to explore these different software packages.

One of the features I've long desired from AMD's software area has been an RSS feed to easily stay up-to-date with new releases as their prior feed stopped working in 2016. I'm told that with their new site integration, this will hopefully become manageable.

Meanwhile it was last year that Intel launched the Intel Developer Zone for easily showcasing all of their software packages on One benefit to the Intel website structuring and the Intel Developer Zone over AMD's current structuring is that Intel has everything in one area for covering all their different product lines. While the Zen Software Studio just covers their CPU software development projects and then separately are the likes of that just serves as the documentation portal / reference area for AMD's ROCm compute stack, for their open-source GPU developer software libraries/projects, etc. There is also the AMD Infinity Hub that launched last year and that is just about promoting software for use on AMD Instinct accelerators. Counting Xilinx is also a whole additional set of developer tools available but not centrally organized/promoted. Plus whatever AMD other mini-sites / portals I am forgetting. It would be great ultimately if there was an "AMD Developer Hub" (or "AMD Developer Central" as currently exists but only seems to be focused on their CPUs) that incorporated their growing collection of software assets and open-source projects across all their different product lines/groups as right now it's very segmented. Or at least if there was a central hub that served as the base destination for all developers interested in AMD software as well as their technical documentation as right now it's far from unified, easy-access web presence for developers interested in AMD's wares.

We'll see how this Zen Software Studio web area evolves. What would you want to see out of AMD's website area for developers? Share your feedback for them by commenting on this article.
