ATI Stream for Communication link simulation

Is the FireStream Processor suitable for such tasks?

While I went to the AMD Website, I "discovered" the FireSteam processor.  It looks like that the processor might be useful for communication link simulation that requires a lot of resources, but I want to make sure I understand it correctly.

In evaluation the performance of a communication link, we often run the same simulation program multiple times under different parameters, e.g. different SNR points and different channels.  These runs are relatively independent.  From the description of the FireStream Processor, sounds like such tasks are naturally suitable for it.  Is this correct?  I would like to make sure before we start going down this route.

Really appreciate if someone can let me know their opinions and share their experience.
