ATI Stream SDK v2.01 Release Notes:

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.

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.
and 3870 cards are now kicked to the curb. guess they felt it was not worth it to keep support for r6xx series even though those cards were supported in v1.4
