    ATI Stream SDK 2.01 Released

    AMD today release a new version of ATI Stream SDK and performance analysis tools which are essential for GPGPU developers to develop OpenCL applications on ATI graphics cards.

    What's new in v2.01:
    Support for Red Hat® Enterprise Linux® 5.3.
    Support for debugging OpenCL™ with GDB on x86 CPUs under Linux
    Preview: Support for OpenCL™ / Microsoft® DirectX 9 interoperability
    Additional OpenCL™ samples:
    GaussianNoise (under cpp_cl)
    Uniform Random Number Generator (URNG)
    Stream KernelAnalyzer with OpenCL™ support
    Various OpenCL™ compiler and runtime fixes and enhancements
    Support for ATI Radeon™ HD 5670 GPU and ATI Radeon™ HD 5570 GPU (codenamed Redwood)

    ATI Stream SDK v2.01 product page:
    ATI Stream SDK v2.01 release rotes:

    ATI Stream Profiler is a performance analysis tool to analyze OpenCL™ programs on ATI Radeon™ graphics cards fully integrated into Microsoft® Visual Studio® 2008.

    Stream KernelAnalyzer (SKA for short) is a tool for analyzing the performance of stream kernels on ATI Radeon™ graphics cards and AMD FireStream stream processors. It gives you accurate performance estimates for your kernels and even allows you to view disassembly of the generated hardware shader. Stream KernelAnalyzer can be used as a GUI tool for interactive tuning of your kernels or in command line mode to generate detailed reports.

    ATI Stream Profiler v1.1 Product page:
    Stream KernelAnalyser v1.4.0.515 product page:

    Note: All of the above requires Catalyst Driver 10.1 for ATI Radeon HD 4000/5000 series discrete graphics cards and AMD FireStream GPGPU cards, or FirePro Unified Driver version 8.683 for ATI FirePro cards.

    Known Issues
    • For error-free processing on 7xx-based GPUs, the maximum work-group size is 64. Specifying a larger size can result in undefined behavior.
    • The NVIDIA 195.62 driver appears to be shipping with an out-of-date version of the ICD. As a result, the up-to-date ICD that ships with the ATI Stream SDK v2.0 may not recognize NVIDIA OpenCL DLLs. Until NVIDIA updates their drivers to correct this problem, you may encounter issues on systems with both AMD and NVIDIA OpenCL libraries installed. The recommended work-around is to remove the NVIDIA driver until NVIDIA updates their drivers to correct this problem

    Fermi Paradox*: "The apparent size and age of Fermi die suggests that many technologically advanced GPUs ought to exist.
    However, this hypothesis seems inconsistent with the lack of observational evidence to support it."
