    All signs point to yes, but does someone have an Apple link confirming the early '08 MBPs with 8600's can run the Open CL GPU offloading in Snow Leopard?

    Didn't they hint at it during the keynote today? Snow Leopard support will be available to all Intel based Macs? So that would include all the features of Snow Leopard being supported on older Intel Macs.

    Knew about the Core Duo but not quite sure on the OpenCL and what exactly does and doesn't support it but I think at the very least the 8600M GT should be able to support it no?
