Its unlikely that AMD is going to be able to make serious inroads in the near future. nVidia has built quite a lead not just in terms of chips but tooling. I had thought a couple of years ago that AMD should be building a competitor to the Tesla. It should be able to build a more hybrid solution than nVidia can given its in house CPU development talent. But I haven't seen them building anything like that and a competitor to nVidia may have to come from somewhere else. In the absence of a serious competitor OpenCL is not very interesting.

Yeah, and that's sad. I really hate to see this whole monoculture thing, especially since CUDA isn't OSS. :-(

Its really a hardware problem.
