AMD STREAM technology includes hardware and software optimizations designed for high-performance compute workflows and compute-intensive applications using OpenCL™, the open and cross-platform programming standard used for general-purpose computations. These features include Error Correcting Code (ECC) memory support, fast floating-point operations and direct memory access that enables low-latency data exchanges between multiple GPUs. When combined with GPU-optimized libraries and third-party middleware, AMD STREAM technology unlocks the computational performance of the AMD FirePro graphics cards.
