Unfortunately, no one replied with any first hand info on the
Visual Instruction Set SDK from Sun; although a couple people asked
me for more info on it. You can get find that info at:

Original question:

I'm looking for first hand experiences and opinions on
Sun's VIS software development kit (VSDK) for harnessing the
raw compute power (2.1 GFlops) of the creator 3D card.

It is my understanding that significant performance gains could
be realized for appropriately optimized applications. I'd
like to hear your success or failure stories programming the
Creator as a general compute engine using the VSDK.

We've since gone ahead and ordered the package from SunExpress.
I will let interested parties know if it is worth the $2000.
