    OpenCL is folded into Metal API. It's both Graphics primitive and Open Compute Language in one.

    You know, what Khronos wants to do with Vulkan.

    OpenGL games drop dead, ALL legacy non metal games will die. IT WILL piss off apple fan boy base. Some will say: enough is enough and will dump it all together. What alternative they have? And yeah, they wont come to windows.

    Is this done for any reason other than vendor lock-in?

    Well, Apple isn't particularly successful in HPC (high performance computing) :-) According to Phoronix benchmarks their perf sucks.

    Pretty sure if MoltenVK starts looking like a more inviting option than Metal, Apple will ban its usage in all applications sold through their store.
