Open CL on macOS

Postby SamWM » Tue Sep 27, 2016 7:44 am

Potentially good news for OpenCL on macOS. Apple looking for an OpenCL software engineer. Perhaps a Metal to OpenCL translation toolkit or even OpenCL 2 on macOS. I have a MacBook Pro myself, but found a PC works much better for rendering.

Wishful thinking perhaps as they do prefer to push their own proprietary technology.

On the topic of OpenCL and Reality/Luxrender, does an AMD GPU work better, since they have OpenCL2 drivers? OpenCL rendering is faster on my Intel Processor (and i7 6700k) than my 980 Ti, is that related to OpenCL version or more complex factors (processor speed, cache etc).
