ATI dives into stream computing
...and makes a splash
I SPENT LAST WEEK
taking in information like a sponge, and this week, it's still slowly seeping out. My IDF wrap
covered Intel's future directions in processor technology, which had a lot to do with highly parallel floating-point processing.

Read on for my take
on ATI's foray into what it calls stream computing.
