OpenCL™ and the ATI Stream SDK  v2.0 OpenCL™ and the ATI Stream SDK v2.0

AMD recently released the ATI Stream v2.0 SDK, which includes one of the first complete OpenCL runtimes, allowing software developers to implement data- and task-parallel computations using a single, unified programming model. This article discusses the history and motivation for OpenCL and the ATI Stream SDK, gives a small introduction to OpenCL programming, and describes how NVIDIA CUDA programs can be easily ported to OpenCL, enabling high performance, cross-platform parallel computing.

Just Released: ATI Radeon™ HD 5800 Series Graphics Real-Time Demos Just Released: ATI Radeon™ HD 5800 Series Graphics Real-Time Demos

The Mecha demo shows the results of a new approach to rendering semi-transparent objects without pre-sorting, known as order-independent transparency (OIT). The Ladybug demo shows the results of a new approach to simulating lens-accurate depth-of-field effects based on real-world parameters of focal length and focus distance.  Both these techniques are made possible by the ATI Radeon™ HD 5800 Series of graphics processors and the new features of Microsoft® DirectX® 11 technology.
