Following the release of the Radeon R and GeForce G70 GPU cores with programmable shadersthe large floating-point throughput drew attention from academic and commercial groups, experimenting with using then for non-graphics work.

GPGPUs were projected to have immediate performance gains of a factor of 10 or more, over compared to contemporary atl CPU-only calculation. The interest led ATI and Nvidia to create GPGPU products — able to calculate general purpose mathematical formulas in a massively parallel way — to process heavy calculations traditionally done on CPUs and specialized floating-point math co-processors.
For highly parallel floating point math workloads, the cards can speed up large computations by more than 10 times; Folding Home, the earliest and one of the most visible users of the GPGPU, obtained times the CPU performance. In the final generation of FireStreams came out, the and cards, based on the Cypress chip featured in the HD The brand became AMD FireStream with the second generation of stream processors inbased on the RV chip with new unified shaders and double precision support.

Another important part of the SDK, the Compute Abstraction Layer CALis a software development layer aimed for low-level access, through the CTM hardware atk, to the GPU architecture for performance tuning software written in various high-level programming languages.
In AugustAMD released version 2. Webarchive template wayback links All articles with unsourced statements Articles with unsourced statements from July Folding home began using the X for general ari, using a pre-release of version 6.

The FireStream line is a series of add-on expansion cards released from tobased on standard Radeon GPUs but designed to serve as a general-purpose co-processorrather than rendering and outputting 3D graphics. This generation again doubled the performance atj to the previous, to 2 teraflops in the and 2.
Plans included the development of a stream processor on an MXM module byfor laptop computing,  but was never released. This page was last edited on 19 Novemberat Retrieved from ” https: Archived from the original on From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.
By comparison, an Intel Core 2 Quad Q 3. In a demonstration of Kaspersky SafeStream anti-virus scanning that had been optimized for AMD stream processors, was able to scan 21 times faster with the R based acceleration than with search running entirely on an Opteron, in This generation was also the only one to feature fully passive cooling, and active cooling fireatream unavailable.
All support bit single-precision floating pointand all but the first release support bit double-precision.
