AMD Developer central just released an OpenCL optimization case study on SImple Reductions. Strategies examined for efficiently mapping reductions onto the ATI Radeon™ HD 5870 GPU and AMD Phenom™ II X4 965 CPU. Taking advantage of properties of the reduction being performed, as well as matching the style of reduction to the hardware platform, can result in performance improvements of up to 15x, compared to naive code.
