AMD Releases New SDK

AMD announced today the availability of the ATI Stream Software Development Kit (SDK) v2.2 with OpenCL 1.1 support to provide developers with the tools they need to build applications.

By taking advantage of both CPU and GPU processing power in a given system, applications like 3D video, HD video chat and multi-display 3D gaming are possible.

The ATI Stream SDK brings a range of tools to the developer community including support for Ubuntu 10.04 and Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5.5.

“Availability of the ATI Stream SDK v2.2 with OpenCL 1.1 support is a great example of how CPU and GPU technology continues to mature and usher in next-generation computing experiences, where voice, touch, gesture and facial recognition capabilities are common, everyday features,” said Patricia Harrell, director of Stream Computing, AMD.

“The enhancements in the ATI Stream SDK v2.2 are especially important due to the support for OpenCL 1.1, which is integral to the forthcoming AMD Fusion family of APUs. These tools allow the developer community to take advantage of heterogeneous computing architectures both today and tomorrow.”
