I just wish AMD and Nvidia wouldn't artificially cripple the DP performance of their non-FireGL/Quadro cards. Pretty much all the software you'd consider "pro" software these days uses SP for FP and in terms of 3D CADCAM OpenGL has been all but abandoned as a result of the software needing to be compatible with laptop IGPs
For those rare instances when you want DP throughput, it's irritating that your hardware is running at 1/8th or 1/64th of it's potential speed just because of some unnecessarily artificial (and incorrect) product segmentation. It's as stupid as intel's K-series not having VT support....
