Can Compute be used more in gaming in the future?
If you buy Video cards for the future, you can't win. I don't see hardcore computing being TOO integrated into the gaming especially with all the ports we're getting.
If your buying these card with the hope of using them in gaming for GPGPU, save ur cash. Look at DX 10 cards, they were released LONG before DX 10 was even mainstreamed, and even now it has been skipped and replaced with DX 11, which has more momentum than 10, but still isn't in every game.
I wouldn't buy a video card on a chance, or for future proofing. You can never be future proof. You buy for now.
