    Developers interested in making both CPU and GPU-accelerated applications are now being offered by AMD a new version of the ATI Stream SDK (Software Development Kit) which includes support the OpenCL 1.1 programming standard.

    "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."

    Beside OpenCL 1.1 support, the updated SDK features:

    - Extended operating system support, including Ubuntu 10.04, Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5.5

    - Increased hardware support including x86 CPUs with SSE2.x or later, allowing users to run OpenCL applications on a greater variety of CPUs

    - Additional support for Linux and Windows compilers, including GNU Compiler Collection 4.1 or later, Microsoft Visual Studio (MSVS) 2010 Professional Edition and Minimalist GNU (GCC 4.4) for Windows (MinGW)

    - Single-channel format support for OpenCL images, providing developers with greater flexibility to access the caches on the GPU

    - Support for OpenCL and DirectX 10 interoperability increasing overall efficiency when displaying computed results to the user

    - Support for additional double-precision floating point routines in OpenCL kernels to enable greater computational accuracy in HPC and scientific based applications.

    For a good while AMD have had Stream SDK with full reference on their site. And although Stream may not have been initially meant for gaming, it would be good if finally we could see stream accelerated games.
