AMD has released the fourth beta of the ATI Stream SDK 2.0, which provides a complete OpenCL development platform with OpenCL ATI GPU support for the ATI Radeon HD 4000/5000 series. Besides running OpenCL on the GPU, this ATI SDK also supports running OpenCL on SSE3-capable, multi-core CPUs from both AMD and Intel too. The ATI Stream SDK is available for x86 and x86_64 Linux, with OpenSuSE 11.0 and Ubuntu 9.04 being officially supported.

Details on this release are available from AMD Developer Central with downloads of the OpenCL beta driver for Linux and the 32-bit and 64-bit builds of the ATI Stream SDK 2.0 Beta 4. OpenCL benchmarks are available in the latest Phoronix Test Suite while we will have more on this Open Computing Language support for ATI/AMD graphics hardware in the near future.
