AMD "AMD has announced the release of the first OpenCL SDK for x86 CPUs, and it will enable developers to target x86 processors with the kind of OpenCL code that's normally written for GPUs. In a way, this is a reverse of the normal 'GPGPU' trend, in which programs that run on a CPU are modified to run in whole or in part on a GPU."

OpenCL for the CPU earlier than for the GPU?

At least NVIDIA already has a working OpenCL developer release for their GPUs, you know the intended target audience of the system. Bah...


So does AMD. Just go sign up and download it.

.... to be fair NVIDIA has had the opencl sdk available for developers for a while, whereas ATI just released theirs (which brings down our linux devel system for stream really hard, so it seems they are not ready for production yet... so this x86 opencl release seems to be a stopgap to not keep developers waiting)
