It's always the calm, quiet ones

AMD has been very quiet about their GPU SDKs, but don't assume that they do not have one. Close-to-Metal, their first offering was available before nVIDIA's CUDA and they have since added a second SDK called Brook+ which has an interface similar to C. The Tech Report had a chance to talk about these two developers kits, and AMDs future plans for Stream computing and physics, along with the other uses these kits can be applied to.
"Just like Nvidia, AMD provides developers with tools to use its GPUs for non-graphics applications, but AMD doesn't make as
much noise about it. Curious, we got on the phone with AMD Stream Computing Director Patti Harrell and asked her to shed some
light on AMD's Stream Computing initiative."
