Still under development as I understand, but as of version 8 you should
have some OpenCL capabilities.

Does ATI/AMD offer anything like CUDA that might be the target of future

Mathematica development?

I ask because I'd hate to think I'd be condemned to using ATI/AMD
graphics cards to take advantage of the GPU from Mathematica. I say this

since my experience over many years is that nVidia graphics drivers have

been less stable than ATI drivers. (But that's just my own experience,
and of course others' may vary.)
