capabilities. (and the white-paper also contains some Intel marketing FUD) Anyways, it looks like a restricted form of Bulk synchronous parallel programming (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bulk_Synchronous_Parallel) and something like Bulk-Synchronous GPU Programming (www.kunzhou.net/2008/BSGP.pdf) implemented on top of OpenCL (http://www.khronos.org/opencl/) so it may run on CPUs and all major GPUs, seems like a much better solution.

this stuff is why Intel executives say they have no interest in Nvidia - and even openly joke about them sometimes.... they have a different plan.....
