What is MIOpen?#

MIOpen is AMD’s open-source, deep-learning primitives library for GPUs. It implements fusion to optimize for memory bandwidth and GPU launch overheads, providing an auto-tuning infrastructure to overcome the large design space of problem configurations. It also implements different algorithms to optimize convolutions for different filter and input sizes.

MIOpen is one of the first libraries to publicly support the bfloat16 datatype for convolutions, which allows for efficient training at lower precision without loss of accuracy.
