ATI\'s x1800 line (and later) of GPU\'s (with Catalyst 6.10) support distributed science and computing projects.

The question isn\'t if, but *When* will we see a client that supports offloading the FLOPs to the GPU?

a 50-100 times increase in performance is not something to take lightly. We should be on this like white on sour cream.

I have a dual x1950 Crossfire setup just WAITING to attach to the first BOINC project to utilize this technology.
