    Phoronix: PoCL 3.1-RC1 Released With Improved SPIR-V Support For CPU & CUDA Drivers, Vulkan WIP

    PoCL 3.1 is nearing release as the "Portable Computing Language" that is most known for serving as a CPU-based OpenCL implementation but via its LLVM usage also allows supporting OpenCL execution atop NVIDIA CUDA and other targets...

    FYI for CUDA it states: Currently this backend has only been tested against CUDA 8.0.

      While I'm all for multiple implementations and pathways as much as the next guy, I fully expect rusticl will kill this thing.

        Another solution of OpenCL on Vulkan :-) It will be interesting to compare PoCL to Rusticl on Zink at some point.

          PoCL predates rusticl by a fair chunk, but rusticl has a couple large advantages, the most important being that it's built on the already mature and highly battle tested gallium stack, meaning a lot of work for rusticl was already done to get it working, (gallium is lovely for a reason).

          EDIT: so you could say that while PoCL predates rusticl, gallium predates PoCL so a lot more work has been put into that.
