AMD has just announced the availability of the ATI Stream Software Development Kit (SDK) v2.2 with full OpenCL 1.1 support to give developers with the tools that will enable them to build incredible next-generation applications. This will allow next-generation computing experiences such as voice, touch, gesture and facial recognition capabilities.

The ATI Stream SDK v2.2 offers a wide range of tools for the developer community, notably, support for OpenCL 1.1, in addition to Ubuntu 10.04 and Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5.5. This updated development platform empowers the developer community to speed-up applications on the CPU and GPU quickly and effectively.

Director of Stream Computing at AMD, Patricia Harrell says, �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.?

These ATI Stream SDK v2.2's new features also include: increased hardware support including x86 CPUs with SSE2.x or later; 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.

Furthermore, the SDK enables OpenCL and DirectX 10 interoperability increasing overall efficiency when displaying computed results to the user as well as support for additional double-precision floating point routines in OpenCL kernels to enable greater computational accuracy in HPC and scientific based applications.

The SDK is available for download on the AMD Web site.
