It adds openCL support.

BTW, a 295 beats a 5870 in pretty much everything at stock clocks.

To put it the simplest way possible, OpenCL will basically equal CUDA in folding performance. That is, once it is refined a bit.

BUT not everyone has a ton of money to throw out on their favorite brand, why not spend 200 dollars less OC and get equivalent performance and being more realistic.

We were just talking what is faster, not what is better for your money, etc.

There is a huge difference.
