Email Reporting Starting with 2022.3, the legacy Email tool configuration is no longer supported due to security reasons. Previously, when the SMTPServer tag was empty, the SMTP server was set based on Windows configuration. The current Email tool configuration uses the SMTPServerName tag which can't be empty.

Join Join Record order. 
Due to the different method of grouping with AMP, the output order is different. This can be fixed with Engine Compatibility Mode.  
Double fields can only be joined to other double fields. 
Join Multiple Join

Record order. 
Due to the different method of grouping with AMP, the output order is different. This can be fixed with Engine Compatibility Mode. 
Double fields can only be joined to other double fields. 

There is a maximum of 32 allowed connections for this tool when AMP is enabled to prevent deadlocks.

Output Data In/Out

Only XLSX, CSV, YXDB, and SQLite formats have been converted. All other formats will fall back to original Engine.
While AMP Engine writes SpatialObj data to the file when saving as CSV file, the original Engine doesn’t. This causes file size difference and users may experience decreased performance.

Overlay Reporting  
Oversample Field Preparation  
Pearson Correlation Data Investigation  
Plot of Means Data Investigation  
Poly-Build Spatial Record order.
Due to the different method of grouping with AMP, the output order is different.
Principal Components Predictive Grouping  
R Developer

AMP Engine passes data to and from R in the original Engine format. 

Double conversion takes time. Single R tool execution time can be slower with AMP than with the original Engine, but it will be faster if multiple branches are run simultaneously.

Radio Button Interface  
Random%Sample Preparation Deterministic output mode will select different records with AMP.
Record ID Preparation  
RegEx Parse  
Render Reporting  
Report Footer Reporting  
Report Header Reporting  
Report Map Reporting  
Report Text Reporting   
Run Command Developer  
Running Total Transform Record order.
Due to the different method of grouping with AMP, the output order is different.
Sample Preparation Group by column mode will output records in different order.
Scatterplot Data Investigation  
Score Predictive  
Select Preparation  
Select Records Preparation  
Simulation Sampling Prescriptive  
Simulation Scoring Prescriptive  
Simulation Summary Prescriptive  
Sort Preparation

There is a difference with Using Dictionary Order when sorting special characters.
Different implementations are used to make dictionary sorting on original Engine and AMP. For original Engine, Windows implementation is used. For AMP - ICU library. It works differently only for special symbols, but not for words/letter/native sort. 

Spatial Info Spatial  
Spatial Match Spatial In mode "Use records from File or Database" only CSV, YXDB and SQLite formats have been converted. Other file formats will use the original Engine.
Spearman Correlation Data Investigation  
Spline Model Predictive  
Stepwise Predictive  
Support Vector Machine Predictive  
Survival Analysis  Predictive - Gallery  
Survivial Score Predictive - Gallery  
Table Reporting  
Test Developer With AMP this tool will output error “Error: Test (109): No tests are configured for input #2“ if there no tests for specific connection.
Test of Means Predictive  
Text Box Interface  
Text Input In/Out AMP creates the maximum size field for strings and integers so that subsequent operations will have the necessary room to hold larger downstream values, whereas the original engine creates the minimum size required to accommodate the data.
Text To Columns Parse  
Throttle Developer Not available on AMP, but you can use it together with the Download tool (Throttle first).
Tile Preparation Record order.
Due to the different method of grouping with AMP, the output order is different.
Tool Container Documentation  
Transpose Transform  
Tree Interface  
TS Compare Time Series  
TS Covariate Forecast Time Series  
TS Filler Time Series  
TS Forecast Time Series  
TS Forecast Factory Time Series - Gallery  
TS Model Factory Time Series - Gallery  
TS Plot Time Series  
Union Join

Record order.
The order of the records may differ due to their variable processing.
You can avoid this by setting a specific output order.

There is a maximum of 32 allowed connections for this tool when AMP is enabled to prevent deadlocks.

Unique Preparation Record order and output result (different records).
Due to the different method of grouping with AMP, the output order is different.
Variance Inflation Factors Predictive – Gallery  
Violin Plot Data Investigation  
Weighted Average Transform When Grouping Fields mode used AMP will output records in a different order.
XML Parse Parse  

Partially-Converted Tools

Tools where not all functionality or configuration has been converted from the original engine to AMP. The functionality of all partially-converted tools is retained on AMP, with fall-back to the original engine when needed.

Tool Category Difference between the original engine and AMP
Blob Convert Developer With AMP, the conversion to a Blob from Text Data and vice versa is not supported. Falls back to the original engine in this scenario.
Create Samples Preparation Summarize tool is partially converted.
Formula tool is missing custom formula functions/add-ins.
Distance Spatial Falls back to the original engine for drive time support and distance to destination.
Find Nearest Spatial Falls back to the original engine for drive time support and distance to destination.
Formula Preparation Custom formula functions/add-ins are not available on AMP.
Heat Map Spatial Summarize tool is partially converted.
Imputation Preparation Record order. Can be fixed with Engine Compatiblity Mode
Due to the different method of grouping with AMP, the output order is different.
Multi Field Formula Preparation Custom formula functions/add-ins are not available on AMP.
Multi Row Formula Preparation Custom formula functions/add-ins are not available on AMP.
Summarize Transform Different order for actions which use Group By.
Actions not supported with AMP: Behavior Analysis\Combine profiles. Falls back to the original engine when used.
Trade Area Spatial Falls back to the original engine for drive time support.
