I honestly think DP is much less important than NV/AMD have claimed. It's an easy buzzword, but the two big problems that I see with GPGPU in the next year are the perception (and maybe reality) that you're writing for one architecture and code won't scale as well as the lack of reasonable development environments. DP is turning away some HPC people, sure, but I don't think that HPC is where the future of GPGPU lies.

PS--I don't get why you'd want MXM? Double-precision computation on a laptop...? Why? Unless this means that these apps won't work at all on consumer RV670s.
