Re: and AMD still working to bring out their entries
Don't understand this comment. AMD has been shipping hardware and software tools to enable GPGPU applications for some considerable time.
Check out http://developer.amd.com/zones/OpenCLZone/pages/default.aspx
In fact there are already apps out that leverage the enormous efficiencies achievable by using GPUs resources rather than CPUs to perform certain applications on AMD GPUs. The future is clearly to enable application programmers to freely choose from the available computing resources, whatever they may be, based on "suitability to task" rather than code just for the CPU as has previously been the case. OpenCL provides this capability. There is even a Java to OpenCL tools (Aparapi).
I notice that even Intel has released an "Alpha" OpenCL tools for its GPUs. A sign for the future?
So, Nvidia is certainly not alone in this territory!
