    I thought this cuda/ gpu computing called grand central was built around nvidia with there cuds cores so do we loose that functionality with the intel hd 3000?

    Edit: Or maybe its called opencl.

    You mean OpenCL.

    Grand Central ist a set of APIs that allow software to take advantage of several CPUs (or cores) and is not affected by the GPU.

    As far as I understand, OpenCL and nvidia's CUDA are separate technologies and OpenCL does not rely on CUDA and should therefore be available on Intel GPUs as well.

    Yes, you lose opencl. Compatible graphics cards are listed in the tech specs of lion.
