yeah, it's somewhat hard to compare unless they are using same specs...
man did that make me laugh.
Hate to say it, but you got a point -- companies sometimes pick utterly retarded things to compare speed against.
It's like comcast in the US saying that you can "download 50,000 emails" before you hit their bandwidth caps -- who even cares? Tell me how many movies I cant d/l on Netflix, or how many HD films I can stream on Apple TV before you cut me off -- "emails" or "MP3 files" is useless.
Either way tho... 24 minutes to convert a full 1080p hi-def stream is time saved. My overclocked 4870 should be able to knock it down by a couple of minutes.
The real issue is coding. CUDA is a high level language, easy to code... if ATI's GPGPU isnt, then no one will want to write SH**T for it except for Ati.
I'm pretty sure ATI's new version of GPGPU (either CTM or this new Stream) is supposed to be just like CUDA.
cude and ATI's stream thingo, are both requirements for DX11. DX11 is going to be based on programmable GPU's (its already been announced this is how they're doing physics), so this is how they're going to make DX10 cards run DX11 features - just program it in, and have the GPU's do it in 'software' instead of dedicated hardware for each function.
so, it seems AMD has had something cooking in the background for sometime. Damn, they've really been stepping up to and on nVidia's toes this year.
bout damn time... now if they can only get the clowns in the processor department to do the same thing.
I'm sure they're up to something, too . . . they can't just go releasing specs left and right, cause Intel sandbags something fierce . . . anytime AMD release specs for something decent, Intel releases another batch of CPUs with higher clocks or some more features unlocked.
AMD is just operating in stealth mode right now, and will come out fighting with some 1337 ninjer skillz. TBH, I expect this stream idea will be a major force behind their next CPU line.
wow best news i've heard all week!! Woot!!
Is this FPS specifically or just loading times??? If it's fps there's no use for such high fps.
no - this is any program that doesn't specifically require the GPU solely for running . . . pretty much, anything but games. It's meant that the GPU could potentiall offload some of the CPUs workload, offering better performance in just about any application you could open up.
Hasn't anyone used Avivo yet?
Install Avivo package
Start Catalyst in basic mode
In the easy setup wizard select Avivo converter and proceed.
and incase you search the ATI website for more stuff and run across Hydravision(tranperency effects and such) don't install it, It hit my IGP's perfomance CS went from 60+ to 15 fps. Even after uninstalling it was hit.
This will speed up folding wont it?
no. folding already uses their programmable architecture, this just allows other programs to use it too.
im know some information about this before , but what is i know this driver only for 4870x2 some driver can enable some some kind of bridge between the two core's which is can make run faster , but know i see this is more here , we can called it some reaction from ati on nvidia bigbang2 , but i hope it will be better than nvidia bigbang 2 which they lose this name when release the 180.43 and say it will be 30% more performance , this driver give good performance but maybe 5-7% only sure they was lie about 30% performance
yea i think its gonna accelerate some programs causes the stream processors will take the load from CPU isn't it some how similar to CUDA of course with different programs.
agree my friend , ati high core speed must be more useful they don't use it well right now, and we know some gpu speed more than 12x cpu speed
The whole thing is pretty fast but doesn't let me change the resolution of the Video
Should be faster on other cards.
ok you say Everything HD 2000 and upward..... why now am i seeing that it only supports the 4800 series gpu's? what gives? ppl not getting there facts right oh what? I hope im wrong!
still in the initial stages wait for it. As you can see my card(x1200) has been supported for some time now and its only an IGP.
