    it takes a lot of time and work to make CUDA compatible enough with Radeon to get it to fully work without any issues.
    So he's ported all of CUDA over to ATI, not just the physX stuff? I think that'll annoy nvidia even more

    they've said on record that they don't mind anyone porting CUDA to ATI (since they still control the spec), but they won't spend any resources or time doing it
