You don't find it sad that programmers ignore OpenCL? I can understand ignoring something proprietary not being sad (CUDA), but OpenCL is an open standard everyone can run.

Any time when hardware goes unused because of programming shortcomings, it's sad. It's like modern programs that don't use more than two cores effectively.

I was involved in a small project getting some cuda code to run, and tbh, for any sort of bigger project, it takes more than a little tweak to get things to work--a lot more. We were doing Conway's Game of Life and that took a little bit to figure out on it's own (and that's a pretty simple program).

Give it time. OpenCL is still maturing. After a few years, the use and development of OpenCL will become larger and many programmers will be jumping onto it.

Its not sadly. The joke is on AMD and of course the will try to distract you with their thoughts.

Thought is one thing. Facts on the hand is a different story. Adobe is using CUDA, Autocad/autodesk is using cuda, Harvard Medical School, The National Airspace System, Google, Microsoft,
Nvidia has put a lot in to this. Where else can you get a free programming language, that all you hvae to do is register and you can learn how to use it? Not to mention all the apps already developed, and or are being devloped.

That comes with the video card, free of charge.


CUDA is bringing forth the GPGPU revolution.

You just read my mind.

Also a lot of programmers are going to be reading this thread so I might aswell ask, which program should I learn ? Java or C++ and how hard is it to learn CUDA ?

Cuda growing really fast ! A lot of people switched to AMD to Nvidea just because of CUDA ( not saying AMD cards are bad so lets not start a war ).

regardless on how CUDA is still an accelerated way to compute tasks. these companies are only part of the "most software developers". Most of the above are only a part, and all of the compute actions in each of the programs are not CUDA accelerated, only a portion, compared to the large majority who programs stuff with solely C++/Java/Python etc. Albeit I do agree that AMD is using the statement as a marketing scheme, AMD's intentions are to attempt to get a majority of the programmers to utilize HSA on its release, most likely affect the Mobile market as well, as CUDA does not exist for the mobile market until Tegra 5, and even so, Tegra is not the major mobile processing power on mobile smartphones/tablets, compared to Samsung, Qualcomm and ARM based offerings, which are 3 of the major suppliers in that field.
