Well, the languages themselves are very similar. 99% of concepts are the same, sometimes renamed for no apparent reason. They could have just adopted CUDA as a standard, but i guess that was unacceptable for political reasons. Main added feature in OpenCL is language support for SSE-like vector operations, which are needed to effectively use AMD GPUs and probably Intel's future SandyBridge architecture.Unfortunately, OpenCL cannot completely hide the differences in hardware architectures. You still have to write the same algorithm twice for NVIDIA and AMD hardware, or suffer unacceptable performance penalties. But at least you can reuse some parts and more easily write software that supports both.AMD's OpenCL compiler and documentation in their current state were a huge disappointment. About half of the time i spent porting FlaCUDA to OpenCL was wasted on combating numerous compiler errors and such. CUDA had it problems too, but nothing like this, for example.
To be honest, i don't know much about it, except that it's not likely to be available outside of Windows world, so it doesn't sound promising.
i've installed catalyst 10.10 APP version for my hd4350 on windows 7 x64.when i try to encode a wav file, it keeps saying:Error: Build failed with error code BUILD_PROGRAM_FAILUREthe same file encodes fine with flac.exe. any ideas?
Probably you didnt install OpenCL driver, look at this page: http://sites.amd.com/us/game/downloads/Pages/downloads.aspx ,choose your OS and than at "individual packages"
