I've just read that there is some interest in ATI support for GPGPU computing on the BOINC distributed computing platform. Currently only nvidias CUDA is supported (it looks they completely sponsor the GPUGrid project, formerly known as PS3Grid), but this may change if they get some help putting the ATI GPU detection for the client together.

As ATI cards have a massive advantage at double precision calculations, it could be an opportunity to conquer that niche of enthusiasts spending lots of money just to build one or even more machines for numbercrunching on some distributed computing projects.
