It is disappointing. Does this apply to GPUs as well?
 
It is a bit disappointing if, as it says in this article, we are only going to get about 30x CPU performance increases in the next 50 years.

Just seems they are always talking about the doom of power and then something come along (GPU, multi CPU, smaller size)

Somehow V-Ray RT GPU ended up close to being the only GPU raytracer capable of running on AMD; and with the latest AMD driver updates it seems to run quite well.

I have not used a travel agency in over 20 years, and I am sure I am not the only one. My family wanted to try and organize a fairly complex travel plan at the last moment with not all the details figured out, and not much personal time to do so. After a careful look on Yelp, I decided to contact Senator Travel. They were very friendly and help me figure out exactly what I wanted. Even when things got tight based on the time restrains, they made sure that we got what we wanted with no compromises. In the end, my kids spent a great vacation with their grandparents, and my wife and I discovered a part of the country we would not have thought to go to. Senator Travel provided exactly what I wanted: very personal service. In the future, if things get even slightly complicated, I would recommend using them, as I have, and will.
