Record order.
For perfomance reasons, this tool could provide different output, run-to-run, because it doesn't require sequence, and can take any record packet that comes from a tool.

Create Points  
Cross Tab Record order
DateTime  
Detour  
Detour End  
Directory  
Dynamic Input

Record order.
The original engine sorts the input records to filter out duplicates. AMP filters out duplicates without sorting.

Dynamic Rename  
Dynamic Select  
Expect Equal With the original engine it's macro, with AMP the Expect Equal is a native tool.
FieldInfo  
Filter  
Find Replace  
Fuzzy Match Record order/column order.
Records are matched in a different order with AMP.
Generate Rows  
Input Data Only CSV, YXDB and SQLite formats have been converted. All other formats will fall back to original Engine.
Join Record order.
Due to the different method of grouping with AMP, the output order is different.
Join Multiple Record order.
Due to the different method of grouping with AMP, the output order is different.
JSON Parse  
Make Group  
Message  
Output Data Only CSV, YXDB and SQLite formats have been converted. All other formats will fall back to original Engine.
PearsonCorrelation  
Poly-Build Record order.
Due to the different method of grouping with AMP, the output order is different.
RecordID  
RegEx  
Run Command  
Running Total Record order.
Due to the different method of grouping with AMP, the output order is different.
Sample  
Select  
Sort  
Spatial Info  
Spatial Match 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.
Test

TextToColumns  
Throttle Not available on AMP, but you can use it together with the Download tool (Throttle first).
Tile Record order.
Due to the different method of grouping with AMP, the output order is different.
Transpose  
Union Record order.
The order of the records may differ due to their variable processing.
You can avoid this by setting a specific output order.
Unique Record order and output result (different records).
Due to the different method of grouping with AMP, the output order is different.
XML 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 Difference between the original engine and AMP
Blob Convert 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.
Distance Falls back to the original engine for drive time support and distance to destination.
Download Only UTF8 encoding is supported.
Find Nearest AMP does not support drive time/distance, so it falls back to original engine for those operations.
Formula Custom saved expressions are not available on AMP.
MultiFieldFormula Custom saved expressions are not available on AMP.
MultiRowFormula Custom saved expressions are not available on AMP.
Summarize Different order for actions which use grouping.
Actions not supported in AMP, including Report\Combine Horizontal, Report\Combine Vertical, Spatial\Combine, Spatial\Create Intersection, and Behavior Analysis\Combine profiles. Falls back to the original engine when used.
Trade Area Falls back to the original engine for drive time support.
