AMD plans an absolute GPGPU monster

AMD

socram (625524) writes "ATI is preparing something really, really special. If it manages to pull it off, it will be a breakthrough even Captain Hook couldn't have dreamt of. We are talking about a GPGPU product, the FireStream/Stream Processor board with no less than four (4) Gigabytes of local video memory. Did we mention real purpose of GPGPU? — annihilating the importance of CPU and server CPU margins, which cannot compare with R600 or G80 in terms of pure processing power. Of course, this comparison is valid only in GPGPU-friendly case scenarios, so we're talking about streamlined computing only. Engineers at PeakStream and Stanford Uni are already having wet-dreams about the possibilities that a single-GPU configuration will do, yet alone multi-GPU one. www.GPGPU.org"
