    Phoronix: OpenCL.org Restarting Work Porting GEGL To OpenCL

    The OpenCL.org community initiative is restarting efforts to port GEGL to OpenCL. GEGL is the library used by GIMP and other imaging applications...

    Is this a typo, or totally intended?

        With a lot of these projects, I wonder: why do they go for OpenCL and not Vulkan? Vulkan has both graphics and compute capabilities and apparently (from what I've heard) it can be great for both and it can allow for many performance optimisations. It also has no vendor bias and should work really well on all GPUs (unlike OpenCL, which does not have a decent implementation on many platforms, or CUDA, which is NVIDIA only). Why not just use Vulkan for compute-only applications without the graphics stuff?

        That said, I have nearly-zero experience with GPU compute. I don't actually know what I am talking about, but it makes sense to me. If anyone can enlighten me, I'd appreciate it.

          OpenCL can run on CPUs. I don't know of any CPU implementation of Vulkan, and even then I don't think it's one of the core goals of Vulkan.

            Vulkan has a focus on stuff that is rendered and is aimed at graphics devices, whilst OpenCL is targeted at generic parallel computing and runs on many devices that aren't GPUs.

              Everyone seems to forget about this.
