Well I've been working with their tools using OpenCL on AMD cards and it is currently far more immature when compared to working with CUDA on Nvidia cards when it comes to driver reliability, developer environment, documentation, and feature set.

But mainly I think AMD doesnt do good enough PR for their products, from a hardware point of view their 7970 card is currently better than any offering Nvidia has on the table...

@Kanter: This GPU has been out since january(ish) just not in pro version with ECC...


PS
Early reports from MIC developers seem to indicate similar immaturity problems there, even from giant intel, it seems to be hard for anyone to leap-frog the immaturity state of a new SoC.
