AMD Talks about DirectX 11 and OpenCL Support for GPGPU
AMD today announced efforts to help further increase the ease and efficiency of software development using AMD Stream™ processing with an extensive set of upgrades planned for future versions of the Stream Software Development Kit (SDK). Through a series of updates to the SDK scheduled over the course of the next 18 months, AMD plans to add full support for DirectX 11, the next-generation suite of advanced APIs from Microsoft.
“Just as it ushered in the era of advanced 3-D gaming for the masses, DirectX is poised to be at the vanguard of the GPGPU revolution,” said Anantha Kancherla, manager of Windows desktop and graphics technologies, Microsoft. “DirectX 11 gives developers the power to more easily harness the astonishing capabilities of AMD GPUs for general purpose computation, and gives consumers an effortless way to experience all that AMD Stream has to offer, on the hundreds of millions of Microsoft Windows powered systems worldwide.”
