Well every scheme Nvidia and ATI had for magical performance ended up being :
"great in the sense that they'll enable huge performance gains in certain tasks" and was all just another marketing scam, I'll suspect the same. Although I would like to see my 8600m GT in my Laptop help with performance boosts but I'm going to be realistic, cause I don't need performance boosts in opening notepad or word.
If anyone knows what CUDA will really help with I would like to read about that.
