Hi AMD Developer Community,

I have a Radeon HD 5870. I would like to write a program similiar to Super Pi (CPU Benchmark) for this card. Is that possible with the ATI Stream SDK? I have never programmed GPUs, only CPUs (C, C++) so I am a complete noob with GPU programming. Is it possible to write a multi-threaded program that calculates decimal places after pi with the ATI Stream SDK? Is it also possible to write a browser that runs on a Radeon HD 5870?

Thank you for your help,
