Before Ryan started in on a marathon session listening to AMD present technical data to a bunch of suits with a lot of money, he had the time to post about AMD’s plans for stream processing.  Among all the announcements expected today, the idea of utilizing the GPU for an incredibly varied list of tasks is maybe the most interesting.  Read his full article to see why that is.

As of today, stream applications are NOT enabled with publicly available drivers but that will be addressed in the next revision of Catalyst coming in December. Once that update is ready, all 2 million of the Radeon HD 4000-series cards should be stream compute ready and will be able to download the new Avivo Transcoder for free as well.”
