It remembers me the demo of iray, but more astonishing due to the hardware used. Very promising!

Don´t forget that this demo of a simple pathtracer employs very lightweight scene geometry, in a near future maybe graphics cards may have much more memory than actually does, to cope with much more complex scene geometry.

By much more memory what do you mean? 'Cuz the HD5970 has like 2Gb :?

I'm wondering about how SLi will work. If I use two cards with 2 GB each will OpenCL use 4GB as a whole or will it work
as separate units. Another thing I can see a problem with is Windows. There is no OpenCL for Windows and this will be
an issue when we talk about Indigo, Maxwell, fryrender and other commercial and Windows based renderer. Why should
a developer spend tons of time porting to OpenCL if there is no use for it on the main platform ... ;o))

Thanks for the heads up Ben. I wasn't aware that the SDK is released for Windows as well.
So any news about lyc working on it? ;)

Kinda sorda, its misleading. There is 2Gb of memory, 1 Gb for each graphics core. So really its still 1Gb of practical usable memory.

If you have 2 cards SLI, and each card has 2 GB of memory, OpenCL (from what i understand) will be able to to use just 2 GB of memory. If OpenCL could address GPUs individual by the programmer (which I dont think it can), then you could use all 4Gb so long as each card was working on different tasks.
Yes i know, my spelling sucks

I'm not sure what's going on with lyc, but me and Nick are dead keen to have a go at it once we have 2.2 released and polished. :)
