Latest ATi Stream SDK Offers OpenCL 1.0 Compliance
It has come to our attention that ATi's Stream SDK now boasts full OpenCL 1.0 support. This is a step in the right direction as this nifty piece of framework will help developers harness the largely untapped capabilities of today's Graphics Processing Units for a variety of less "gaming" orientated applications.
The platform will also allow for improved usage of multicore processors. Some background information about OpenCL:
What is OpenCL™? OpenCL™ is the first truly open and royalty-free programming standard for general-purpose computations on heterogeneous systems. OpenCL™ allows programmers to preserve their expensive source code investment and easily target both multi-core CPUs and the latest GPUs, such as those from AMD. Developed in an open standards committee with representatives from major industry vendors, OpenCL™ gives users what they have been demanding: a cross-vendor, non-proprietary solution for accelerating their applications on their CPU and GPU cores.
The official "Stream" compatibility list extends from the entry level Radeon HD 4350 onwards.
