ATI/AMD traditional weakness still exists and simply providing a standard won't help it. Their issue is lack of developer support.

NVIDIA reaches out to GPGPU developers much better with CUDA than ATI does with Stream.
Which is why CUDA and Physx are so successful.

Duckie you always say the most astute and correct things, why are not a moderat..oh, wait!

I mean i used to fold, but i can't seem to get it to use my GTS 250(usualy physics and cuda crap) And not either of my 460s, if i could get it to do that, i'd happily fold 24/7



But as i said, nothing out there really utilises the raw power gpu's have, that the average crowd uses, and i for one welcome this change.

[quote=Redwoodz;13894681]Oh yeah,because we all know how Nvidia was happy to make CUDA open-sorce.Bottom line is they tried to monopolize GPU computing and they failed.Sure Nvidia makes good gaming GPU's but they basically set there whole future on GPU computing,so between this new standard and AMD's APU domination.If AMD can catch up with their Fire professional line,Nvidia is in real trouble.Time for Huang to go.

had to laugh when I read this quote of his from 2009
http://www.tomshardware.com/news/nvi...orce,9032.html
Quote:
Mr Huang said “Apple wants to differentiate. So inside your [COLOR=blue !important][COLOR=blue !important]MacBook[/COLOR][/COLOR] is a NVIDIA chipset. Because Apple wants to build fundamentally different computers than just the Intel platform. They want to add value.â€
Mr Huang said that in his home they’re “all Apple.†According to him “Apple uses the best technology for their [computers]. Apple says to their customers: if you buy a computer from us you can be sure we have selected the best technology inside for you. That is their promise to consumers. Their promise to consumers isn’t we’ve selected the best technology for you with the exception of what Intel allows us to use. That’s not their promise. And that’s why Apple uses the best technology where they want whenever they want. And that’s why I’m all Apple! At home it’s just Macs everywhere. It’s NVIDIA’s technology in all of them but I use Macs. My son has two Macs, my daughter has a Mac, there’s an extra Mac just in case and my wife has a Mac. It’s just Mac, Mac, Mac! Because I know it’s got the best stuff inside.â€

Omg,the Nvidia CEO is a Apple fanboy.
My next card is definitely a AMD.

Sad thing is.. AMD 58xx/69xx cards have much more theoretical raw computing power than anything nvidia has recently put out.

Like duckie said, the support isn't there :\\

Yet the AMD 58xx and 69xx series have more computing power than any Nvidia with CUDA.

My friend, mr Duckie put the "shill"lacking on you. As mentioned before... his comments are about 2009... it's 2011 and AMD is vastly ahead of nvidia of developmental work & working with "other companies".

Secondly, Physx isn't successful... it is a marketing gimmick. As cpu physics is far superior implamentation for online games. Unless u play Batman with shuffling paper & waving banners... & want to add a second gpu (marking) to get this eye candy (piece meal) physx placement in games.

CUDA is a whole other beast & wholly irrelevant (as a proprietary means) moving forward. As open standards & the proliferation of muti-core cpus simple overshadow the need for specific hardware.



NVidia shills can speak.. but logic, reasoning & facts will always thwart their pseudo attemps @ marketing on forums.

Tesla is not a graphics card that people are going to have in their homes (unless you happen to be the reincarnation of its namesake).

Not a programmer anymore but....why hasn't Linux picked up something similar to this already?

May not be for kids but they are definitely the majority. Can you not tell by the most of the posts.
