In the AMD Stream SDK, with Brook+, you will only be able to enable the GPU backend or CPU backend for a particular process. Can you describe the use case in more detail where you need both GPU and CPU backends enabled at the same time?
For the second point, are you looking for a customized card from AMD that contains those characteristics? The RV670 that is available now is 55nm so that would require a new ASIC.
And, unfortunately, I can't comment on next gen GPUs. :-) Coming soon... :-)
First point 1) If you unlock the GPU and CPU backend togheter the calculation power will become a little better insted using only the GPU; what i will tell you is GPU+CPU = results in less time instead of using only the GPU for calculation.
Second point 2) Yes i need a graphic card with those characteristics and i can spend out 600euro or more for a card with those characteristics .
can i have one ? I will pay now. Even at the end of 2008 year can i have for example in December if is this possible ?
A customized R700 at 45 nanometer with more Stream processor and more Texture management unit and 32 Raster operation processor for GPU instead of 16 for each GPU.
For point 3) I want only know if is true we have a increment of 552000 GFLOPS
increasing the gpu clock core to 950 Mhz ; at 850 Mhz clock core we have 1008 GFLOPS
at 950 Mhz clock core have we really 552000 GLOPS ?
are this performance increment true ?
4)Another question how many will be the calculation power using INT data type instead of using Floating point data type ?
For example if we have a calculation power of 1008 GFLOPS for floating point calculation how many will be the calculation power if i use only INT data type ?
Why not customized products for exclusive customers.
Standard product for all Pc users; exclusive product for exclusive customers.
Yes i know a customer can say i will a GPU with 6000 stream processor and after all not have money for this.
Customers must to reserve the product wants AMD make a estimate the product you need costs $$ the customers must to give a cash advance to AMD and after months when the product is ready shipping it to the customers have required.
Let me know more about the questions i have written.
I've forwarded your suggestion on to our AMD FireStream hardware product manager.
As far as performance of future products go, we really aren't allowed talk about it. Sorry for the inconvenience!
Unfortunately, I don't have the numbers for integer performance. However, based on the ISA doc, each of the stream cores can do both SPFP as well as integer so the integer ops is likely to be comparable to SPFP.
Ok Michael i stay tuned ;.)
1) Do you have any information about the support of Microsoft VS2008 in a next release of CAL SDK ?
Yep! There is preliminary support for MSVS2008 in v1.1-beta. See the post I just made on this forum about where to download v1.1-beta.
Please let us know if you encounter any problems with it as it is early support.
