AMD announced the opening of a new research and development (R&D) center in Israel, located in the Tel-Aviv area. A world class team of highly talented software engineers is working on the latest heterogeneous computing technologies for the next generation of parallel computing platforms. This announcement follows AMD’s recent acquisition of Graphic Remedy, a renowned Israeli startup company specializing in development tools for heterogeneous computing and 3D graphics.
“We are extremely excited to have this new team on board working on AMD’s latest technologies and future products.” said Ben Bar-Haim, corporate vice president, software development, AMD. “The creation of this new R&D center in Israel and the talent we already have on site greatly contributes to AMD worldwide innovation ability. With this recent investment in Israel we are also continuing to promote and enhance the developers’ heterogeneous ecosystem for the AMD Fusion accelerated processing unit (APU).”
Before being acquired by AMD, Graphic Remedy
had been built to create professional software products designed to help companies and software developers deliver advanced, robust and optimized 3D graphic and parallel computing applications on multiple platforms. gDEBugger, the company’s flagship product, is an advanced OpenCL and OpenGL debugger, profiler and memory analyzer, which traces applications’ activity on top of the OpenCL and OpenGL APIs to provide the information a developer needs to help find bugs and to optimize application performance.
Graphic Remedy founders, Avi Shapira and Yaki Tebeka, are now part of the newly created AMD team in Israel.
