They've already been left behind, or else they would not have to pay developers to not use CUDA. Also, nVidia has better OpenCL support than ATI in terms of performance and stability despite the fact that it's not their first choice language for GPU development (obviously).

What ATI actually needs to do is stop treating software development like some minor aspect of their GPU production that can be haphazardly tossed together. They have much, much better hardware than nVidia on paper and yet they are merely competitive when it comes to graphics and much worse when it comes to general purpose computation, because their drivers seem to have been written by a high school programming class.
