Woot awesome, cant wait to see what people come up with ^^
Hopefully CoreAVC can use this to implement hardware acceleration for video files. fingers cross.
Why don't some smart programmers use the SDK to make it cuda compatible. Instead of rewriting the cuda apps to run an a ATI GPU?
why don't some smart coders make an opensource version so things aren't split up between cuda and stream? isn't M$ doing something like that with Directx11
Would be neat if Stanford used this to make ATi GPUs more competitive in folding again.
Also want a PC capable of upscaling as well as my PS3.
Be carefull, this release still only supports OpenCL on the CPU. If you look at the "what's new" on the product page, it only mentions OpenCL for CPU, which is how other sites are reporting it.
well on the physics side of things, I know thats what MS is doing with DirectX 11 and same goes with OpenCL which will be nice as it will work with both manufactures.
Or maybe nVidia should just throw CUDA out of the window and start supporting OpenCL or DX11 Compute Shader as a standard. That would make everyone's lifes easier (I think ). On topic, I think this is a good move by AMD. They haven't get the market trust back again but at least they're on the right track now. Hopefully more and more peoples will consider to buy AMD's products again (including me
There's only one thing I'm still perplexed about....WHY ISN'T AMD improving steam?
This is a good step though.
+1 on throwing out Cuda and PhysX for that matter
Nvidia does support OpenCL - drivers are here: http://www.nvidia.com/object/cuda_opencl.html
I happened to be away on compassionate leave on Friday and, as a result, a factual error crept into this article - I keep right up to speed on the latest developments in GPU technology and GPU computing, so I would have proofread or edited this article had I been at work. ATI Stream SDK 2.0 beta 2 does not support GPU acceleration in OpenCL, as was suggested in this article. I have written a supplementary article to this one, detailing AMD's plans for GPU-accelerated OpenCL support in Stream SDK: http://www.bit-tech.net/news/hardware/2009/08/10/ati-stream-sdk-v2b2-gpu-support/1
