OpenCL – common framework for CPU+GPU computing

Very interesting:

“OpenCL is a programming framework that allows software to run on both the CPU and the graphics processor of the computer.”

“…earlier this year Apple offered OpenCL to the Khronos Group, a standards-setting organization, and Intel, Nvidia and AMD joined forces to create a standard that would work on multiple chips.”
