    Nice progress from the green team.. however they really need to work on removing the bloat from their driver packages.

    I'll have to give these a shot on my wifes computer when I get home. I've never really noticed any differences when I upgrade graphics drivers though so I never get to excited about it. Can anyone explain Open CL better? I'm behind on this :x

    Ok, so now we have PhysX, Open CL and DirectX 11 that all allow a graphics cards to do calculations that are not graphics related. DirectX 11 will probably take over, so the other two will just slowly disappear or be used for professional applications, similar to Open GL which is rarely used in PC game development today.

    Nice. I'll have to go download this right away! Don't know if I'll see any difference on my GTX 260 though.
