    Please be aware that due to some nonsense in OGL 4.3 spec for compute shaders compute support is *toy* level for me meaning even optimized simple matmul from Nvidia CUDA SDK isn’t portable straightly.. the *key* is that barriers aren’t allowed in control flow.. this is supported in D3D 11 compute shaders, CUDA and OpenCL models for ever so seems an Nvidia extensión would be become .. hope you help spread this defficiency here .. please see detailed post on OGL forums :

    why is this website so Windows-centered? why are there no new for Mac users and software for Macs? why is GPU Caps Viewer only for Windows?
