    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.
