them and therefore can't be their win. While ATI card is an interesting
offering (price/performance wise), nVidia have the technological edge just
like they do most of the time.
CTM (Similar to CUDA) has been working for a greater length of time than its
nvidia counterparts. Infact, theoretically, you can write a middleware layer
for CTM that implements CUDA's C extensions and APIs, while, for CUDA, your
locked to whatever Nvidia gives you.
Both CUDA and CTM have their Pros and Cons, but its hard to comment
that nVidia has been on the "Technological edge", definatly when it still
dosen't support the original intentions of DirectX10, nor 10.1 (Ethier to
prevent game developers to adpot the 10.1 standard so Nvidia remains
the king of peformance or, Nvidia dosen't want to shell the cash needed
to rework an entirly new archetecture to take full advantage of the 10.1
