AMD Focuses the Power of Fusion to Address the Toughest, Most Compute-Intensive Research Challenges

As previously announced, AMD is working with industry partners to develop the OpenCL programming standard. The continued evolution of the Stream SDK is expected to guide developers using Brook+ code paths to OpenCL upon its release, ensuring that work done today can be leveraged in future software.

Pricing and Availability

Both the AMD FireStream 9270 compute accelerator and ATI Stream SDK v1.3 are planned to be available in late Q4 2008. The ATI FireStream 9270 is planned to have an MSRP of $1499 USD and the ATI Stream SDK is always free of charge. The AMD FireStream 9250 is available now, delivering 1 teraFLOPS of processing power while consuming roughly half the power and physical space of computing solutions.3 For more information visit www.amd.com/stream.

About ATI Stream

ATI Stream is a set of open AMD technologies that allow the hundreds of parallel stream cores inside AMD graphics processors to accelerate general-purpose applications, resulting in platforms capable of delivering dramatically high performance-per-watt. The freely distributed, fully open ATI Stream SDK allows programmers to make advanced use of AMD hardware, and helps them to create fast, energy-efficient applications on a growing variety of platforms and operating systems.

1 Based on comparison of the AMD FireStream 9270 compute accelerator vs. the Nvidia Tesla C1060 Computing Processor. The AMD FireStream 9270 delivers upwards of 240 GFLOPS double precision floating point peak performance while the Tesla C1060 claims 78 GFLOPS double precision floating point peak performance based on published information.

2 Claim based on algorithm implementation on AMD FireStream 9250 compute accelerator. When run without the assistance of the AMD FireStream 9250, the calculation completed in 1626.91 seconds. With accelerated assistance using the AMD FireStream 9250, the calculation completed in 13.08 seconds. System specifications: AMD Phenom X4 9950 Black Edition quad-core processor (2.6GHz), Windows XP 32-bit, ATI Stream SDK version 1.3 pre-release version, and AMD FireStream 9250 stream processor. Individual performance may vary.

3 Based on comparison of the AMD FireStream 9250 compute accelerator vs. the Nvidia Tesla C1060 Computing Processor. The AMD FireStream 9250 delivers upwards of 240 GFLOPS double precision floating point peak performance, consumes 120 watts at peak performance, and is a 1-slot form factor, while the Tesla C1060 claims 78 GFLOPS double precision floating point peak performance, consumes 200 watts at peak performance, and is a 2-slot form factor based on published information.
