    How well will the curent 2006 and 2008 mac pros work with snow leopard.
    Apple just refreshed the low end mac book, adding support for openCL.
    OpenCL sounds like something Apple is going to be pushing in snow leopard.
    Are the current macs capable of openCL.

    Are the current mac pros, capable of taking advantage of openCL found in the upcoming snow leopard.

    No, the MacPros will not support snow leopard. :rolleyes:

    Any intel powered mac will support it.

    They take advantage of GPU power in general, don't worry. Snow Leopard or not, the pro smokes Apples notebook offerings.

    openCL is just the code, it should work with any Graphics card, right?

    Yes.

    And it sounds like neat new technology. I really want to see how much faster this is going to be compared to Leopard. :D I would trade "300+ New Features" for 2x the speed anyday.
