big deal if nothing is produced to use it.

will this increase [email protected] PPD on ati cards though?
We wont be seeing much done with Stream/Cuda much beyond whats already announced or out, most people are going to work on OpenCL based apps instead

Why waste resources and time building two separate apps for Cuda/Stream when you can write one program with OpenCL and be done with it, its much more efficiant use of a programmers time since the one app will work on both cards rather than needing specialised apps for each

Yes it should be, but it relates to hardware so I guess that it could work in both categories.
