Hi Nirav,

You can download AMD FireStream drivers here: http://support.amd.com/us/gpudownload/Pages/index.aspx

If you are programming with Brook+, you can set BRT_RUNTIME to cpu to run your code on the CPU instead of the GPU. This is for functional testing and not for profiling though.

Hi Michael ,

Thanks for the reply.

I have to develop a code that does a lot of processing which needs to be executed parallely for which I am using brook + and Amd Firestream 9170

Now I have the hardware in the lab but somehow I want to do it at home and may be weekly test it in the lab.

I was thinking there is a simulator for this so that I can work on it from my laptop.

Thanks
Nirav.

You should be able to use the CPU backend when you don't have access to hardware. It will at least let you develop and test functionality. What GPU do you have in your laptop?

For Brook+ samples you could find it in C:\Program Files\ATI\ATI Brook+ 1.4.0_beta\samples as for CAL you could find it in C:\Program Files\ATI\ATI CAL 1.4.0_beta\samples.

But I suggest you to download Brook+ 1.4.1 in Sourceforge as samples there compiled smoothly because I got 1 error in SDK samples and the Bitonic sort has been revised to produce correct result.

Then you can create new environment variable and set the value to cpu, restart after set.

Finally you can try to compile and run those samples.

One more, the document will be accessible from start menu and desktop if you installing Brook+ 1.4.1 from Sourceforge
