    Yeah, I'll probably do that as well at some point I hope it can compile wine. Anything but the most basic of optimisation with gcc causes crashes with wine at the moment. Would love to squeeze a few more FPS out of it

      I suppose that it has something to do with PathScale's 'CUDA-killer'?

        Hope distributions will provide kernels compiled with it, maybe different kernels for specific processors (Phenom, Turion, i7 etc.). Or maybe the full distribution compiled with performance optimisations.

          If it is ekopath then I have a busy weekend flipping building another OBS system and respinning openSUSE.

            Wasn't pathscale already involved in Open64, and path64?
            Either way, I have my doubts about anything truly far-reaching being announced, but if it's something nice and compiler related, then any article is going to have to be pretty well thought out (including which benchmarks are run, and what they're compared to), or else everybody is likely to rip it to shreds.

              I think that the idea of simply recompiling the whole Gentoo system with this is extremely optimistic.

              Although this is unlikely to ever replace GCC (same with CLang), it's always great to have more open source compilers out there.

                thats wrong you can calculate speculative on multiple cores

                  hey yes nice :-) but after this we still need openCL ...

                    Would OpenCL run at the speed of the card or at the speed of the driver optimizations? (ignoring that it has to pass through some software layers to get to the card)

                    OpenCL kernels running on the GPU should not be impacted by driver optimization while they are running on the GPU, right?

                            Q posted what a Dirndl is. A simple google helps too.

                              i think its a mix of both hardware speed and driver optimizations.

                                At least this time it's software that's already compatible with Linux, unlike the Lightworks video editor, which we probably won't see natively supported on linux for another 5-10 years.
