Since this looks like the dawn of parallel computing, we will have to wait and see, Nvidia is pushing hard on Cuda and it has a huge advantage as it started a year before everyone else and Intel’s CT won’t launch in beta before the end of 2009, which was confirmed by Pat Gelsinger at IDF Beijing Keynote.
Intel’s Larrabee is the chip Intel needs for CT as it is based on many parallel cores and it should do this parallel job well. Intel already said that Larrabee supports OpenCL so if industry goes this way, Intel should be ready.
