OpenCL

OpenCL

OpenCL (Open Computing Language) is a multi-vendor open standard for general-purpose parallel programming of heterogeneous systems that include CPUs, GPUs and other processors.

Using the OpenCL API, developers can launch compute kernels written using a limited subset of the C programming language on a GPU. This language offers a a cross-vendor, non-proprietary solution.

OpenCL supports a wide range of applications, ranging from embedded and consumer software to HPC solutions. OpenCL is developed by multiple companies through the Khronos OpenCL committee.

Features include:

  • Flexible execution model
  • Shared Virtual Memory - a single address space which is shared between the host and device
  • Dynamic Parallelism using task-based and data-based parallelism
  • Utilizes a subset of ISO C99 with extensions for parallelism
  • Defines consistent numerical requirements based on IEEE 754
  • Defines a configuration profile for handheld and embedded devices
  • Interoperates with OpenGL, OpenGL ES, and other graphics APIs
  • Generic address space removes the need to overload functions based on address space
  • Pipes - Built-in functions for kernels to read from or write to a pipe, providing straightforward programming of pipe data structures that can be highly optimized by OpenCL implementers
  • Blocks and device kernel creation
  • Optimised Image support: including support for 1D images and 1D/2D image arrays, 3D image reads and writes, read_write as a modifier for images, mip-mapped images as well as images with more than one sample per pixel
