I expect that there will still be a significant software piece to the solution. It would be nice if it would just plug and play with the hardware and give you a faster machine, but I would bet that the software providers will get a cut to supply you with a license that will use the accelerator.
So many years we have been hoping for a step function improvement in acceleration for those compute hungry applications. Maybe this will be the solution. In the past the software wasn't compatible and the memory bandwidth just coudn't keep up with the accelerator. maybe these barriers will finaly come down...
