QuoteOpenCLâ„¢: The Future of Accelerated Application Performance Is Now

OpenCLâ„¢, or Open Computing Language, is the first open programming standard OpenCLfor writing software for general-purpose computing across both CPUs and GPUs.

Changing the Game
The ability to perform compute-intensive tasks in parallel, using virtually any multicore processor, opens the door for performance and functionality improvements on an unprecedented scale. If you're working with processingintensive applications in CAD, CAM, CAE, science, DCC or M&E, get ready for OpenCL to change the way you work.

GPUs: Not Just for Graphics Anymore
OpenCL provides an open, uniform programming environment that enables the processing technique known as GPGPU, or general purpose computing on graphics processing units. GPGPU makes it possible to offload certain processingintensive tasks to the GPU, rather than relying on the CPU to do them.
