Hi, I am looking at buying some (consumer end) hardware with a view towards exploring ATI Stream (and/or CUDA) computing (towards scientific computation applications) and was wondering if the omission of the HD 4830 as a supported GPU in the system requirements page for the v1.3-beta SDK was intentional or an oversight (perhaps coming from older versions of the documentation that predate the HD 4830?):
|ATI Radeon HD||23501|
2600 XT 1,2
2900 GT 1,2
2900 Pro 1,2
2900 XT 1,2
1Does not support double precision floating point operations
2Does not support kernel scatter
-- is the limitation in the first footnote remark above temporary (at least for the 4xxx series cards), i.e, is it expected to to be removed in the future versions of the SDK?
-- I noticed that some (IGP) motherboards (as well as video cards) explicitly list support for CUDA. I was therefore also wondering if explicitly stated support is required from vendor specific implementations of the hardware for one to be able to use that hardware for Stream computing.
Thanks in advance!
