With v1.1-beta comes:

- AMD FireStream 9170 support
- Linux support (RHEL 5.1 and SLES 10 SP1)
- Brook+ integer support
- Brook+ #line number support for easier .br file debugging
- Various bug fixes and runtime enhancements
- Preliminary Microsoft Visual Studio 2008 support


If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to post your question to the forum.

Sincerely,
AMD Stream Team
Wishlist:
- Brook CUDA backend.

A quick search around here didnt find any references to this. I think I read a post sugesting CUDA on CTM or CAL a few days ago. Brook on CUDA seems easier.
Disclaimer: I know CUDA and AMD´s stream SDK only at the executive PDF level.

I see advantages to a brook port to cuda.

AMD Stream Processor First to Break 1 Teraflop Barrier

—Next-generation AMD FireStream™ 9250 processor accelerates scientific
and engineering calculations, efficiently delivering supercomputer performance at
up to eight gigaflops-per-watt —

The AMD FireStream 9250 stream processor includes a second-generation
double-precision floating point hardware implementation delivering
more than 200 gigaflops, building on the capabilities of the earlier
AMD FireStream™ 9170, the industry’s first GP-GPU with double-precision floating point support.
The AMD FireStream 9250’s compact size makes it ideal for small 1U servers
as well as most desktop systems, workstations, and larger servers and
it features 1GB of GDDR3 memory, enabling developers to handle large, complex problems.

AMD is also working closely with world class application and solution providers
to ensure customers can achieve optimum performance results.
Stream computing application and solution providers include CAPS entreprise,
Mercury Computer Systems, RapidMind, RogueWave and VizExperts.
Mercury Computer Systems provides high-performance computing systems
and software designed for complex image, sensor, and signal processing applications.
Its algorithm team reports that it has achieved 174 GFLOPS performance for
large 1D complex single-precision floating point FFTs on the AMD FireStream 9250

174 GFLOPs is incredibly fast (CUFFT did around 20 on the G80 last I looked).

1 TFLOP, <150W power, 1GB GDDR3 in a single slot? This ought to be interesting. I was sort of expecting a 2-slot card with a leaf blower.
