Kind of hoping that "valid question" will go away aren't you?

That question is valid only in your screwed up mind....Just my opinion though.

I do agree that Compute and OpenCL is a very good option, now that it is finally possible to write code for it.
Happily it seems to be that many developers are making the change for it, although Cuda and C++ has some nice interest as well.

And right now, Nvidia has released 4, yes 4 CERTIFIED OpenCL compliant drivers where as ATI has yet to have one pass certification.

Absolutely true,but at least that i've heard of it,they aren't being protective to the point of ignoring that direct compute or OpenCL exists and can do the same things stream can in the end,and Nvidia marketing does keep pushing Cuda pretty hard no matter if in the longer run,GP-GPU computing can make a much larger impact when there's unified standards that works on all hardware.

What's keeping CUDA alive is that it was the first one out and there's a much more developed software infrestructure for it than either Direct compute or OpenCL,which are still in their first steps.

Not really. I'm sure others to are getting sick of it. The amount of threads that have been taken way of track with the pointless bickering. I can't see the point of it unless some people directly want that to happen.

Pay attention to this part very carefully,which i linked to earlier:

We are actively sampling preview releases of OpenCL CPU with a handful of strategic customers and ISVs, each with an assigned application engineer helping them. A public beta and production version of OpenCL is planned to be released as part of ATI Stream SDK v2.0 in the second half of this year, the statement by ATI/AMD reads.

The stream SDK 2.0,has OpenCL drivers included,including production versions,implying non beta...

It's true,we are seriously off the main topic at this point,and i take my fair share of the blame here,but regarding the GTX 470 and GTX480,it seems we have to wait until Cebit to find out final clocks,and have a better clue then,at least when it comes to floating point,texturing and fillrate abilities.

It implies nothing other than the fcat it comes with a driver. Do a search for ATI OpenCL certified driver, nada. Not so for Nvidia. Again, CERTIFIED. ATI can't certify the driver, the group behind OCL does and they haven't done it yet. ATI submitted a driver back in November and it stil hasn't come back yet as CERTIFIED. They seem to move slower than a snail going up hill in the winter in a stream of molasses.

Ah. So as the person who likely accounts for more posts than anyone else in the GF100 forum on the NVIDIA fan site, who just happens to be using $1200 - $1400 worth of ATi cards, and had $1200-$1400 worth of ATi last gen cards, is one of very, very few people on the forums with a costly EyeFinity rig, and spends his time in the GF100 forum posting FUD from Charlie or love letters to ATi, you thought I was "crazy" having it cross my mind you might be an ATi viral marketer?

And that it is even more suspicious you'd spend some hours after the request for receipts trying maintain your charade but you still wouldn't post the receipts?

What's the matter? The guy with $2000+ worth of graphics equipment doesn't have a digital camera, or know how to hit the "prt sc" key? Uh huh.

You're right, it's outside the realm of possibility you're a viral marketer. You could have just posted the receipts in less time than it took you to make the many posts saying you wouldn't.

EDIT:
Hey! You're an old pro at posting FUD for ATi! LOVE your comments about the 2900XTX "monster" <snicker>
