    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.

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

    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 mean will you be able to compile a kernel with it and have the whole linux stack built with it???

    and what about all the other gcc competing compilers (llvm)
    It's fully GNU C compatible, so you'll simply replace GCC with this, compile everything and everything.

    Is this MIT licensed? I thought somneone mentioned it? Then this will replace all open source compilers. Even on the Mac.

    The Himeno benchmark is single threaded so there is no way openCL is causing this performance bump.

    Yes, EKOPath4 was 1795 USD and there is no trace of ordering information on their website, only a link to a "trial", i.e. no link to "purchase". Considering *BSD people already bought and open sourced their C++ runtime, that won't be surprising to get the compiler as the next step. I wish this was ENZO though. On the other hand, ENZO has no price tag and this could be the link to the "OpenSolaris" community Michael mentioned...
