PC Perspective takes a look at the ATI Stream and NVIDIA CUDA GPGPU computing technologies, you can check it out over here.
Since our initial review of five of NVidia's CUDA-enabled applications back in June, we've been chomping at the bit to get our first real look at ATI's entry into the GPU computing ring called ATI Stream. Both of these platforms use parallel computing architectures to utilize the GPU's stream processors, in tandem with the CPU, to significantly increase any system's video transcoding speeds.
Today, we are going to discuss both of these technologies as well as benchmark a couple video transcoding applications from Cyberlink that support both CUDA and ATI Stream platforms. We will also take a brief look at ATI's Avivo video converter to see what ATI's own free software has to offer.
