Member since:

However, with the poor performance of Bulldozer, it will take more than a 20% boost to match Intel's current performance... MAYBE some semblance of this tech will be in Piledriver... but I seriously doubt it :-(

This research is maybe hinting at a full open source GPU that does opencl also.

I wish ARM/VIA did the same as AMD.

In any case AMD is brave enough and it will be the target of my new desktops. I do not care that much about performance only. If the model is open and easy to program for Illumos/*BSD/Haiku without blobs then I am ready to buy.
