Blimey A_J_S_B, what happened to your quoting?
Re the article, blows my mind how many people here read this stuff yet
seem able to view this sort of tech only from a gamer perspective. Kinda
bizarre, gaming isn't remotely the cutting edge of GPU tech, never has been.
It can feel like it to those who buy costly GTXs, but in reality the real
cutting edge is in HTPC, defense imaging, etc. SGI's Group Station
was doing GPU stuff 20 years ago which is still not present in the
consumer market (unless that is anyone here knows of a PC that
can load and display a 67GByte 2D image in less than 2 seconds).
