When can we expect support for OpenCL from ATI/AMD ?

Hello !

The OpenCL specifications have been just publish recently.

Given the long list of acknowledgements in the 1.0 specs, AMD/ATI has been quite active in the process. Also, after reading the specs, this whole cross-platform GPGPU mid/low-level API looks really interesting !!!

I would like to know : how long do we have to wait until we get an OpenCL implementation for Radeons ? (I would like to test some OpenCL code of mine !!!) and how long until Brook+ gets some OpenCL backend ? Are there any estimation how long until we get at least some preliminary versions ? Specially OpenCL under Linux ?

Thank you very much !
