    "an OpenCL platform that enables developers to create applications that run the way they were meant to be run, on all the available processors in the system"

    Will ATI and Nvidia play nice on my system and share the load?

    Good question... but I doubt we'd get an honest answer from either company at the moment (they don't know effectively). The proof will be in the pudding.

    Potentially, but it's up to Stanford to create an OpenCL Folding client. That might happen now that both ATI and Nvidia have OpenCL drivers.

    Why do people always think the proof will be in the pudding? I have reasons to believe that cheescake is a better source.

    However, as we all know (thanks to BT), not all cheesecakes are created equal, so choice is very important here.

    Interested in the reasoning. Especially since me and several friends have switched from Nvidia to Ati BECAUSE of driver problems in the past few years.

    IMHO The Nvidia driver = stable, Ati = unstable meme is reversed, the opposite is true.
