Portable OpenCL (pocl) 0.7 released

• Tags:

Portable OpenCL (pocl) is a MIT-licensed open source implementation of the OpenCL standard which can be easily adapted for new targets and devices, both for homogeneous CPU and heterogenous GPUs/accelerators. pocl uses Clang as an OpenCL C frontend and LLVM for the kernel compiler implementation, and as a portability layer. Thus, if your desired target has an LLVM backend, it should be able to get OpenCL support easily by using pocl. Read More

Virtual OpenCL (VCL)  Cluster Platform releases v1.17

• Tags:

Virtual OpenCL (VCL) is a cluster platform that allows unmodified OpenCL applications to transparently utilize many OpenCL devices in a cluster, as if all the devices are on the local computer. The latest update includes one security fix, bug fixes and the addition of SuperCL special registry, allowing SuperCL programs to read the time in nano-seconds. Read More
