handling complex tables in Excel
would that mean that Office is using openCL to do all the calculations ? Would be nice if it would. It's a bit strange that Microsoft is only partnering with AMD, since nVidia is still market leader when it comes to gpu's.

//edit: now that I'm thinking of it, openCL is maybe cheaper than CUDA
