    I do like they're way of addressing data. My previous experience with stuff like this required MPI and it was a nightmare to manage the data. Data partitioning and movement had the potential to be as hard, if not harder, to handle efficiently in software than the partitioning of the operations.

    I do wonder how efficient the system is when all processors are loaded and you're hitting memory from all over the chip.

    In those MIMD GPUs, the "I" stands for vector instruction, and the "D" stands for vector data. So it's not the same MIMD I was taught in school.
