Excelent news. Ati Streaming was great, but too low level to do...whatever your tried. Cuda C++ was basically just #include the dam libraries and off you go.

Im happy too see ati turning Directx11 (lets see how can MS f4ck this up) and especially openCL. That would even open more doors on multi-OSes. Although "close-to-metal" might show better results on practice, coding in it, is just bonkers and time consuming.

Kudos to AMD, they really seem to be bringing out good products lately and listening to their customers. I suppose thats what you get when an engineer is running the company.

what is this APU AMD is working on for 1Q '09? Is it fusion or something different?

I am also intrigued by an APU. Is it AMDs answer to below performance processors? A processor thats been specialized for a certain task like gaming?

[citation][nom]nukemaster[/nom]OpenCL is like an open source Cuda(easy to use programming language for running apps on video cards). OpenGL is for games.[/citation]
I know wtf openCL is.AMD=ATi.God,it's not that hard,they're the same company..BTW,Direct-X 11 has NOTHING to do with graphics..GJ morons.
