Mainly it should brought some competition back in the game, resulting with lower prices for faster speeds.
Redardless if one is a nVidia fanboy or AMD one, or indiferent - we all gain from this.

Some stuff is already happening. nVidia give out specs (not all, but most) of their chips for Linux away. Some says taht this is the equivalent of frozen hell...
NVIDIA to provide documentation for Nouveau [LWN.net]
ftp://download.nvidia.com/open-gpu-d...ification.html

So all it takes is to have a real competiton, and now - everything is possible. Congratuliations, AMD! :)

A lot of this stuff isn't necessarily new. What's new is that this is done in real-time via GPGPU tech.

Makes me wonder if there will be performance fall-offs when enabling this new audio decode.

Found the company's audio demo on Youtube not bad at all. Better implementations already exist so I'm not that impressed but it's great to see a hardware implementation in GPU's. That distribution to the masses is going to raise the bar in audio quality pretty much every audio related industry which I really like.
