When CUDA came out I was really excited. Use the graphic card to do calculations. However I am not really happy about the new nvidia card. The 480 GTX costs in my opinion quite a lot and the power consumption is huge. AMD is catching up with nividia and it did a good job with its new graphic cards. I was wondering if the AMD cards can also be programmable using OpenCL.

Yes, you can use OpenCL to do calculations on an ATI card.
Thanks, I hope I can get soon into a basic course of OpenCL.
