AMD Stream SDK is the software development kit for AMD's Stream computing technology.

AMD Stream SDK is the software development kit for AMD's Stream computing technology.

AMD Pioneers Stream Computing on Graphics Processor Units

Stream computing allows AMD's graphics processors to accelerate complex computations working in concert with today's high-performance, low-latency CPUs.

Along with leading companies and academic institutions worldwide, AMD is working to build a complete stream computing ecosystem, one that delivers the performance, applications, software and tools necessary to turn AMD's low-cost stream computing vision into reality.

Fortune 1000 companies, leading software developers, and academic institutions are demonstrating today that stream computing is the key to tremendous performance in a number of applications.

What is Stream Computing

Stream computing harnesses the tremendous processing power of graphic processors for high-performance, data-intensive computing in a wide range of scientific, business and consumer applications, providing organizations the ability to process massive amounts of information in significantly less time.

Stream Computing Applications

The accelerated processing associated with stream computing has implications for a number of fields now and in the future, as the ecosystem around stream computing matures:

Life Sciences & Scientific Research

Life sciences & scientific researchAMD's stream computing efforts are contributing to the life sciences by enabling faster results in areas such as disease research, giving organizations the opportunity to do more granular studies in the same amount of time as in the past.

Stanford University uses the distributed computing application, Folding@Home, taking advantage of AMD graphics processors for disease research. Learn more about Folding@Home.

Climate research is another area of interest with stream computing. Analysis of large data sets for storm and hurricane forecasting can be done faster or in more detail, potentially resulting in the issuing of severe w

System Requirements:

?пїЅ ATI Radeon Linux Display Drivers 8.5 or better


Install ATI driver

1. As root, run the script "ati-driver-installer-8.49.4-x86.x86_64.run"
2. Run "aticonfig" (or "aticonfig --initial" if it is the first time.)
3. reboot

Install CAL

1.Run CAL installer script "amdcal-1.01.1_beta.x86_64.run" (default cal location is /usr/local/amdcal)

2. CAL needs libstdc++.so.5. If that is not present (eg, in Redhat Enterpise Linux 5.1), you will need to install lib compat-libstdc++-33-3.2.3-61.i386.rpm, and also compat-libstdc++-33-3.2.3-61.x86_64.rpm

Install Brook

1. run Brook installer script "amdbrook-1.01.0_beta.x86_64.run" (default Brook location is /usr/local/amdbrook)

Setup environment variables

1. Add the CAL and brook library paths

Eg, in a bash shell,

export LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/usr/local/amdcal/lib64/:/usr/local/amdbrook/sdk/lib:$LD_LIBRARY_PATH


So far we have tested on Suse Enterprise Server SP1 (no issues), and on Redhat Enterprise Linux 5.1 (need to install extra rpm's to get libstdc++.so.5).
Program Release Status: Minor Update
