I think on the pro side there are better solutions; if you are intent on spending thousands.
On my side since I have compared a radeon 4890, to Nvidia this is out of my Budget for now. I may consider the low end option later. Interesting as this is, I need to look at that more, what the GPU is doing in the system. Without this plugin, would GPU benefit my new system. <Still looking into>
Has anybody used this technology ?
