In the final generation of FireStreams came out, the and cards, based on the Cypress chip featured in the HD In AugustAMD released version 2.
The FireStream line is a series of add-on expansion cards released from tobased on standard Radeon GPUs but designed to serve as a general-purpose co-processorrather than rendering and outputting 3D graphics. The FireStream was claimed to be 20 times faster in typical applications than regular CPUs after running PeakStream’s software [ citation needed ].
Retrieved 28 June All support bit single-precision floating pointand all but the first release support bit double-precision.

For highly parallel floating point math workloads, the cards can firestrean up large computations by more than 10 times; Folding Home, the earliest and one of the most visible users of the GPGPU, obtained times the CPU performance.
Following the release of the Radeon R and GeForce G70 GPU cores with programmable shadersthe large floating-point throughput drew attention from academic and commercial groups, experimenting with using then for non-graphics work.

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. The brand became AMD FireStream with the second generation of stream processors inbased on the RV chip with new unified shaders and double precision support.
This generation was also the only one to feature firestrwam passive cooling, and active cooling was unavailable. In a demonstration of Kaspersky SafeStream anti-virus scanning that had been optimized for AMD stream processors, was able to scan 21 times faster with the R based acceleration than with search running entirely on an Opteron, in Views Read Edit View history.
This generation again doubled the performance relative to the previous, to 2 teraflops in the and 2.
