AMD Catalyst 10.6 For Linux Brings Changes

,----[ Quote ]
| Catalyst 10.6 for Linux offers up RHEL 5.5 
| production support, official support for 
| OpenGL 3.3 and OpenGL 4.0, and 2D 
| performance enhancements. AMD was quick to 
| support OpenGL 4.0 on their AMD Radeon HD 
| 5000 series "Evergreen" hardware via their 
| proprietary driver, but now with Catalyst 
| 10.6 that support is officially there. The 
| older R600/700 ASICs only support up 
| through OpenGL 3.3. There is not, however, 
| any early OpenCL 1.1 support in this 
| month's driver.

OpenCL 1.1 Fully Backwards Compatible

,----[ Quote ]
| The Khronos Group today announced OpenCL 1.1,
| a backwards compatible update that boosts
| performance in the parallel programming
| standard. OpenCL 1.1 efficiently shares images
| and buffers by linking event objects and fence
| sync objects, features memory object
| destructor callbacks and now allows for OpenCL
| commands to be enqueued from additional hosts.
