AMD has released the final version of the ATI Stream SDK v2.0.0. In short the ATI Stream SDK is AMD’s OpenCL SDK.

And of course, this new version comes with changes in OpenCL and guess what my friends ? GPU Caps 1.8.0 OpenCL demos don’t work anymore on Radeon. And since I have plenty of free time, it’s not a problem for me !@###!arrrhh…. 😉

I’m working on and the new GPU Cap 1.8.1 should be available very very shortly…
