Earlier today I reported about OpenCL and the lack of applications that can use it now that Snow Leopard is here.
MacRumors has a report that there is already a OpenCL Benchmark Application available. With that app you can see the potential computing power you have in front of you from your GPU and CPU.

Somehow running the OpenCL Benchmark might even be more frustrating as you would see how much power would be available if there would be just OpenCL enabled software.
The OpenCL Benchmark is a rather basic and can only be run on the command line. It supports both NVIDIA and ATI GPUs.
