TAMPA, Fla. - NOVEMBER 14, 2006 - At the Supercomputing 2006
show today, AMD (NYSE: AMD) introduced the world's first dedicated
stream processor designed to meet the specific hardware demands of
high-performance computing (HPC) applications. Engineered specifically
for compute-only systems such as workstations and servers, the AMD
Stream Processor(tm) makes use of AMD's new thin hardware interface
called CTM(tm) to drive substantial performance gains in areas such as
financial analysis, seismic migration analysis, and life sciences
research, among others.
Stream computing leverages sophisticated massively parallel
processors generally used to calculate and render millions of pixels
onto computer monitors, hundreds of times each second for 3D graphics
Stream computing harnesses that tremendous processing
power for a wide range of scientific, business and consumer computing
applications, providing organizations the ability to process incredible
amounts of information in significantly less time.1 The AMD Stream
Processor is the first hardware of its kind dedicated to addressing
stream computing problems in the enterprise space.
