omg, can i use the cinema4d renderer on a regular radeon in windows?

edit: omg omg "Based on the OpenCL™ standard and API, Radeon ProRender can utilize both GPU and CPU regardless of your hardware’s setup. As long as the processors support OpenCL 1.2 and its requirements, Radeon ProRender can work.

The free Radeon ProRender SDK, available on GPUOpen.com, provides a C++ library which allows for easy porting into applications wherever a fast, high-quality renderer is needed."
