HPCWire features OpenCL Promises and Potential

While OpenCL is very similar in many respects to NVIDIA's CUDA, it adds features to take advantage of other targets; and though it's quite complex, it has the potential to deliver very high performance, and is much easier than trying to map your computation into OpenGL or graphics primitives. So says Michael Wolfe, with over 30 years in both academia and industry on developing compilers, and is now a senior compiler engineer at The Portland Group, Inc., a wholly-owned subsidiary of STMicroelectronics, Inc.

OpenCL Kernel Compiler Project

A compiler for OpenCL Kernel files designed to be used during OpenCL application development is now available on SourceForge. The use of this tool alleviates the need for building compiler diagnostic message retrieval code into applications that use OpenCL. It allows developers to spot compilation errors during source builds instead of at run-time.

OCLTools - Open Source OpenCL compiler tool suite released

OCLTools is a powerful, yet compact, suite of tools that provides developers with more alternatives to kernel compilation. OCLTools enables you to eliminate costly kernel compilation time from the runtime of your application. With OCLTools developers can embed the source code of their kernels (clear text or encrypted) directly into their program binaries eliminating the need to distribute kernel source code in the open while still maintaining the flexibility of runtime compilation.

MulticoreWare announces Multicore Cross-platform Architecture OpenCL runtime compiler

MulticoreWare Inc. has announced the Multicore Cross-platform Architecture (MXPA), an OpenCL runtime and compiler, enabling cross-architecture performance from a single, unified codebase. MXPA is designed to preserve the expression of parallelism in OpenCL, independent of vendor hardware and software stack implementation. MXPA currently supports x86 architectures and is being extended to a wide range of platforms from CPUs to DSPs with minimal vendor support.
