[Chris Kenny] "No to the point that it only runs on this machine, obviously, but certainly pro app developers will test quite a lot on these systems, and the consistency they'll bring for graphics, high-speed external disk I/O, etc. will mean more users running on systems more similar to those that developers are using. That does bring real benefits — it's always been one of the Mac's benefits in pro use cases, and this system extends that."

More important than that -- Apple is really pushing OpenCL with this system.

If a developer can exploit OpenCL with good and highly parallel code, then the performance of their app will scale as the users climb the Apple hardware ladder.
