Not exactly brand new news but I see GPU crunching coming to asteroids@home.   Dancing  didn't notice that before?

See link..

Of course not available as yet, so it's just some more tempting news & another great reason to get a good GPU.  As far as i'm concerned any news about GPU app development is good news.  At least the app has already been built & is now being tested.

As I mentioned before in another thread AMD R9 290x & R9 290 next gen cards have been released as well as Nvidia GTX 780 ti's but unfortunately they all share one thing in common stripped down fp64 support.  Which of course is needed for the aseroid@home's app being tested.
Early looks show these new cards offer great gains in projects where double precision math is not a requirement(most of them), so it's not as bad as is sounds but it ticks me off that they cripple these cards on purpose so they can sell the un-crippled versions to industry & scientists as high end data center/workstation cards & of course charge them at 4 or 5 times the price for the privilege.  Both AMD & Nvidia do the same thing but AMD in the past didn't totally cripple them as badly as Nvidia did. (until now at least)   Any thoughts?
