ATI/AMD has had OpenCL working well for the last 4 iterations of Catalyst 10.x so whats the bleedin hold up it looks like ATI/AMD will have the HD6xxx series cards out before GPU3 makes an appearance
GPU2 does support 5xxx series cards, just use the -forceGPU switch. Yes, native detection of the hardware will be nice, but not a big deal. The install instructions for 5xxx cards shows this requirement.
How do you define working well? Or who or what are you basing that upon? Working is NOT the same as working well, or supporting all necessary features...
And even if the 6xxx cards come out before GPU3, that only hurts Stanford more, so they are well motivated to move forward where and when possible. Obviously there is some kind of bleedin' holdup, and it's not likely on the Stanford side, though it could be a bid of both.
