  2. Hi Jay,
    Its been a over a year since this blog was posted. Now we have advanced GPU’s from NVIDIA and AMD. From your view do you see any key differences between them that us humble photogs should be aware of?
    Thanks,

  3. Allen,

    There have been improvements in the GPU processing but the simple answer to your question about the impact to an individual photographer is, not much has changed on the desktop. There still seems to be some settling out in the languages used on the GPU and their support within the OS and individual applications. There has been a lot of improvement in GPU processing on mobile devices and wider adoption in the video, 3d and motion graphics world, but only a handful of photography applications have been rewritten for GPU processing.

    Nik’s Viveza is one of them and I’m told it is really fast on supported NVIDIA cards. http://www.niksoftware.com/company/usa/entry.php?info=company/pressroom/usa_silver_efex_pro_2_announcement.shtml

    Stay tuned!
