Re: Nvidia Mulls Over Porting PhysX to OpenCL
I believe the point Slay was making is more about the end-user side of things. Whether through programming bias, lack of support, marketing, *whatever*, there are quite a few major programs out there that WILL run better on Nvidia cards. And yes I know the opposite is also true, but not to the same extent. And that factors into my decision when choosing a gfx card.
Maybe that won't be the case in a few years, maybe nvidia is heading for a spectacular crash with CUDA and massive single gpu architechture. Maybe it really IS more difficult to code for nvidia GPUs, I wouldn't have a clue. But right now, what I do know is nvidia is ahead in the market.
