I remember when Apple announced Mac OS X 10.6 Snow Leopard. One of its main features was OpenCL, which, according to Apple, "allows developers to tap the incredible power of the graphics processing unit for tasks that go beyond graphics". Wow, amazing! OpenCL seemed to unleash the power of GPUs and take GPGPU to the masses. However, Snow Leopard was released in August 2009, almost three years ago, and I've heard little about OpenCL since then. I've heard that it is hard to develop GPGPU applications, and developers are not willing to take this step. I've also read somewhere that Adobe applications (such as Photoshop), as of version CS6, are finally using OpenCL to some extent. However, I've not seen anywhere a list of applications supporting OpenCL and how it affects the speed. There's a list of applications supporting CUDA at the NVIDIA website (http://www.nvidia.com/docs/IO/64497/NV_GPU_Accelerated_Applications.pdf). Not applications towards consumers, though. But I've not seen a list of applications supporting OpenCL. Is there any?
