    I think Stream are already included and it's called OpenCL.

    OpenCL on nvidia is through Cuda

    OpenCL on ATi is Through ATI Stream

    why not make GPU-Z to include a check box for ATI Stream too, like there is for nvidia Cuda? thats what i'm saying

    What is the deal with Bullet physics? Is it run off of the GPU? I ask this because I noticed 3DMark 11 is using it.

    I think ATI stream is now called AMD eyespeed.

    It is called Accelerated Parallel Processing (APP) Technology.

    Because Cuda is API like OpenCL and Direct Compute, but Stream (APP) is not, and it needs OpenCL driver to work. That is why there is no need to include checkbox for it. That is how I understand it:).

    It can run on both. There is option in Bullet Physics Demo to switch between CPU and GPU. It runs on GPU via OpenCL.

    thats what ATI is calling their openCL drivers, i dont know if those drivers include direct compute as well.

    I guess that's what stream technology is called now too. W1zzard says that Stream is dead. Stream SDK is still called Stream SDK, but it's all about OpenCL implementation. I see connection there. Direct Compute driver is included in DirectX as I know.

    That's exactly why the GPU-Z should include it coz it's different from Cuda

    Stream needs opencl to work so therefore stream is covered by the OpenCL checkbox, no need for a separate one

    its the other way around, openCL is generic standard that runs via ATI stream - much like PhysX runs on CUDA.
