    Just some info...

    The spoiler is from a blog post over at AMD Developer Central by Mark Ireton (Product Manager for Compute Solutions at AMD) :
    Welcome to OpenCL™ 1.2: check out these Beta drivers that contain a complete OpenCL™ 1.2 solution.

    He states:
    The OpenCL 1.2 beta includes the following OpenCL™ 1.2 functionality:

    Host access flags for memory objects enable more efficient buffer handling and provide added protection. For example, a buffer that is created as “write only” cannot be read from the host.
    Pattern based GPU buffer and image initialization can help eliminate need for certain buffer/image transfers
    Memory objects migration supports transfer of buffers prior to need
    New generalized image creation API
    Enhanced image/buffer map operations
    OpenCL 1.2 CPU device partition including partition of a CPU after addition to a context
    Generalized 1D and 2D images, image arrays, and image<-> buffer interop
    Libraries support including the separation of compile and link phases and the ability to compile with external symbols
    Kernel reflection, the ability to query a kernel’s arguments
    Support for printf as a built in function

    OpenCL™ 1.2 support is scheduled to be included in our official AMD Catalyst™ driver releases in the coming months.
