Default Message from 7im on Legit Reviews

Please reread that FAH NEWS post more carefully. Here is Vijay's post ...http://folding.typepad.com/news/2010/01/some-more-details-on-the-gpu3-core-regarding-opencl.html
Here is an update and some more details on the third generation GPU core. As I stated before, this core is built on OpenMM, which brings the science further along and allows us to make easier updates. OpenMM supports OpenCL in beta form in its 1.0 release (scheduled for late January 2010), but it is important to stress that the OpenCL support is very early and so we will not be relying on OpenCL in the first releases of the GPU3 core.
OpenMM with OpenCL support was scheduled for release in January, NOT the fah GPU3 fahcore.

And if the fah client was to use OpenCL, it certainly couldn't get released before OpenCL's January release date.

Please also note that GPU3 is actually considered a new fahcore, not a whole new client. Your client version may get a slight rev to support this new fahcore (as has been done in the past, just a guess) but this first release will not appear to be that much different than any other new fahcore release from the client's point of view. However, the science done inside the fahcore and sent back to Stanford is said to be very different.

I hope that helps clear up any misconception about a January release date, and help to alleviate any misplaced consternation as a result of that misconception.

You guys should keep that 7im on a short leash; he can be a bit of a troublemaker...

If I recall 7im helped start this team with some PPD when the team was a wee glint in SG's eye:
4 x GTX295 -working-

Helped get us on the map and it is appreciated!
