KDE's KStars Working On OpenCL Support
Phoronix: KDE's KStars Working On OpenCL Support

This guy has been working on optimizing KStars for a GSOC project, and it's not just OpenCL.

OpenCL works on the CPU and GPGPU, not to mention any other DSP device. Eigen is better served providing easy APIs to call OpenCL directly than competing with it.
