AMD has released the software development kit for its Fusion line of CPU/GPU mashups, an update and renaming of its ATI Stream SDK. "When developers harness the power of parallel processing within our APU designs, they can fundamentally change the PC experience to help not only make it faster, but also to create new …
Let me be the first to welcome, hahaha!
I am glad to see this finally out, and with Fusion support and formal support for 4890s ('cause I own two of them). Support for Bobcat is cool: being able to leverage the GPU part of a Bobcat should make possible a quite high ratio of computational power to electrical power consumption, and that in a small box.
However I was really hoping to see the new AMD 'Stream' SDK include a low level C-like binding in the style of CUDA C. Nothing wrong with OpenCL, I just like the nitty gritty of CUDA.
The article gives this link http://developer.amd.com/gpu/AMDAPPSDK/Pages/default.aspx for the new SDK. That page has this link for download http://developer.amd.com/gpu/AMDAPPSDK/downloads/Pages/default.aspx.
So I downloaded it, and noticed it has the exact same file name as AMD Stream 2.3 SDK I grabbed months ago.
And the output of "diff -q ati-stream-sdk-v2.3-lnx64.tgz ../dnld/AMD-Stream-2.3/ati-stream-sdk-v2.3-lnx64.tgz" (the first file being the new SDK, the second file the one I downloaded months ago?
The output is: "". No difference.
