    Default AMD Releases New Stream SDK For Linux With OpenCL 1.1

    Phoronix: AMD Releases New Stream SDK For Linux With OpenCL 1.1

    AMD has released a new ATI Stream SDK this morning and, among other improvements, it features OpenCL 1.1 support. The OpenCL 1.1 specification was released by the Khronos Group back in June as the first major update to the Open Computing Language since it's original draft in 2008...

    Nice. But, PLEASE, get (basic) OpenCL support into GPU drivers already. It sucks that ATI users have to install the SDK to run OpenCL applications.

    OT: And without the SDK the DirectCompute performance is horrible.

    nice, however building the programs with ubuntu packages generated on the ati installer is still a bit buggy. To actually compile the sdk on ubuntu 10.04 and the latest drivers, you need to run the following commands as a quick fix for finding the missing libraries.

    Code:
    sudo ln -s /usr/lib/fglrx/libatical.so /usr/lib/libatical.so
    sudo ln -s /usr/lib/fglrx/libaticalrt.so /usr/lib/libaticalrt.so
    sudo ln -s /usr/lib/fglrx/libaticalcl.so /usr/lib/libaticalcl.so

    Lightbulb Inofficial Packages

    Hi!

    At least there are inofficial Debian packages which make installation quiet easy.
