    For whatever it is, I'm told "the ball is rolling" from the company... so something will be stated within a few hours.

    Literally all this says, its something named Dirndl that has performance increases. So very, very vague. Not once did the article say what it actually is.

    Hey, here's what googling around reveals:

    While details of the company's technology is still a closely guarded secret, PathScale is currently running its CUDA-killer through an alpha testing period - and Bergström has promised that whatever technology comes out of the other end will be open source and freely licensed.

    If the NVIDIA killer thing is a developing technology, then it probably was never availible for and over $1795 a licence...

    Yes, it seems this is not the ekopath compiler suite but rather a gpgpu compiler (likely based upon their ekopath compilers) which is being released as open source. No less interesting, particularly if this is as mentioned in the article cl333r linked to, that you don't need to make changes in the code in order for this compiler to work it's magic in utilizing cpu+gpu very efficiently.

    Nope, in bit-tech link:
    PathScale's secretive technology promises to beat CUDA and OpenCL at the GPGPU game.

    That's the entire point. FTA:
    a big software announcement is pending after being set back multiple times over the past week. Here's one graph illustrating the real-world impact of this yet-to-be-announced open-source move
    I really don't see any possible way Michael could have been clearer. Well, other than by violating his NDA and getting sued.
