It's been no secret that NVIDIA has been working on an OpenCL Linux driver
for their graphics processors just as AMD has been doing, but up until now their beta drivers were only available to registered NVIDIA developers. Today though -- on the same day as NVIDIA's OpenCL driver launch for Windows -- they have made their OpenCL
support publicly available.
From the OpenCL download page
is all of the NVIDIA OpenCL work, which includes the NVIDIA 190.29 display driver for Linux x86 and Linux x86_64 that implements OpenCL 1.0 in all of its glory. NVIDIA's Open Computing Language support will work with any NVIDIA graphics processor that is CUDA-enabled.
For Linux, NVIDIA also has its GPU Computing SDK as well as code samples and an OpenCL Visual Profiler. Now it's time to get some OpenCL benchmarks within the Phoronix Test Suite
as we await AMD to officially ready their GPU Linux driver with an OpenCL 1.0 implementation.
