AMD release APP SDK 2.8, CodeXL 1.0 and Bolt

This is old news now that AMD have released APP SDK 2.8, CodeXL 1.0 and Bolt. Bolt is a C++ abstraction of OpenCL which allows you to write OpenCL applications without actually writing OpenCL. I personally haven’t tried it as we are not going to be using it at work but it sounds a good step forward in making GPGPU more accessible to the mainstream. For anyone interested there are a number of blog posts by AMD on how to use Bolt.
