In the final generation of FireStreams came out, the and cards, based on the Cypress chip featured in the HD By comparison, an Intel Core 2 Quad Q 3.
Folding home began using the X for general computation, using a pre-release of version 6. This generation was also the only one to feature fully passive cooling, and active cooling was unavailable.

The FireStream was ari to be 20 times faster in typical applications than regular CPUs after running PeakStream’s software [ citation needed ].

In AugustAMD firestreaam version 2. Webarchive template wayback links All articles with unsourced statements Articles with unsourced statements from July In a demonstration of Kaspersky SafeStream anti-virus scanning that had been optimized for AMD stream processors, was able to scan 21 times faster with the R based acceleration than with search running entirely on an Opteron, in The interest led ATI and Nvidia to create GPGPU products — able to calculate general purpose mathematical formulas in a massively parallel way — to process heavy calculations traditionally done on CPUs and specialized floating-point math co-processors.
The FireStream line is a series of add-on expansion cards released from tobased on standard Radeon GPUs but designed to serve as a general-purpose co-processorrather than rendering and outputting 3D graphics.
Plans included the development of a stream processor on an MXM module byfor laptop computing,  but was never released. Another important part of the SDK, the Compute Abstraction Layer CALis a software development layer aimed for low-level access, through the CTM hardware interface, to the GPU architecture for performance tuning software written in various high-level programming languages.
For highly parallel floating point math workloads, the cards can speed up large computations by more than 10 times; Folding Home, the earliest and one of the most visible firestrram of the GPGPU, obtained times the CPU performance. This page was last edited on 19 Novemberat The brand became AMD FireStream with the second generation of stream processors inbased on the RV chip with new unified shaders and double precision support.
Following the release of the Radeon R and GeForce G70 GPU cores with programmable shadersthe large floating-point throughput drew attention from academic and commercial groups, experimenting with using then for non-graphics work.
This generation again doubled the performance relative to the previous, to 2 teraflops in the and 2. Views Read Edit View history.
