OpenAAC reminds me more of a certain audio codec.

Isn't that suppose to be OpenACC?

wait, i thought this is what OpenCL was for.

Yeah I was wondering why Nvidia wasn't throwing more weight and tools behind OpenCL. Oh wait, then it'd run on AMD hardware effortlessly, too.

LOL, you obviously have zero openCL development experience in coding or optimizing for openCL devices I see.

so what's wrong with OpenCL that this new thing had to be created?

Cuda was dead long ago, another failure for the nvidia fanboys that list cuda/physx (another failed propitary thing) vs radeon gpu's.

... and all benefit, but... that's first will happen in unix/linux space... the windows programmers are lazy to adopt things to speed up workflow... we still have 32bit one trended applications...

That's just something they needed to do to survive since OpenCL has ended up being supported by all the major software & hardware firms, whereas CUDA is still proprietary to NVIDIA and OpenCL doesn't seem to run as well on Nvidia as on ATI stuff, so .........the step.

Does it affect the gaming???????

You know that Cuda is still the largest deployed and developed for GPGPU solution by a long shot right?

What are you talking about? First of all, what OpenCL applications are you referring to? I'm not aware of very many, and no, they haven't been widely adopted. As of now, CUDA is by far the most widely adopted parallel computing architecture.

Wow dude, you really sound like you know what you're talking about. Nvidia provides full support for OpenCL and did so before AMD. In fact, one of the few OpenCL applications I'm aware of, SmallLuxGPU, seems to perform significantly better on Fermi based GPU's, especially gf100/110.

Yes, CUDA is proprietary, but given Nvidia's market share relative to AMD's in GPGPU computing, introducing a proprietary standard really isn't much of a problem.

If you're just going to spam baseless AMD fanboyism in the hopes of deceiving the ignorant, may I suggest...

I really wish they would have just announced more opencl support/partnerships/etc. instead
we don't need this !!

I guess I shouldn't speak too soon, but i'm skeptical.
