The Acceleration market is alive...

AMD's Fusion finally saw the light of day and it's getting awards. How this translates into better computing, more horsepower and better programming models is still to be seen.

With this hardware actually in the wild, I'm looking forward to hearing about students, professors and researchers actually programming something on it. If it only saves power, it is a sound silicon design. It's industry impact will be dependant upon simplified programming and more effective computing.
I haven't seen that demo-ed anywhere yet. Have you?

Meanwhile, the world sees a need to speed up math. Those GHz aren't getting any faster, are they?
