    The accelerate framework used to be the interface of choice for high performance applications, but now the introduction of OpenCL and GCD things have kind of shifted...

    Are there any equivalent libraries to the Accelerate family using OCL and/or GCD, or are we on our own? Seems like the stuff in vImage and vecLib would be natural fits to OpenCL...

    From what I have read it is a case of rolling your own solution with most of the frameworks. As far as I know (and I could be hugely wrong on this front) Apple have not reimplemented the majority (if any at all) of frameworks to natively take advantage of OpenCL and GCD.
