And makes you question whether it's worth the effort - CUDA has remained relatively unchanged on the NV cards since the 8xxx series, so is a decent target for resources. You don't want to have to spend time and money coding for a platform that may be obsoleted in a year or 2.

True but I don't see OpenCL going anywhere anytime soon, as it is an open standard and not AMD/ATI specific.
