NVIDIA, Not bluffing after all...

A couple of months ago, Nvidia CEO fired up a surprise attack on Intel saying that the age of faster CPU is over with new heterogeneous computer architectures. His stated that the end-user can get better performance with a high-end graphics card than with (even) a lower end processor. He supported his argument stating that Nvidia CUDA platform will make use of GPU as a multitasking processor, with faster 3D, 2D image processing capabilities. In other words, PCs with CUDA enabled graphics card, will be able to run normal (That has to be more specific though) applications (written with CUDA platform,) from their GPU!!!.
