As Jen-Hsun Huang pre-announced the other day: Apple yesterday announced it's own GPGPU solution called OpenCL. (not to be confused with OpenCL the cryptography library now called Botan) So far there are only a few details available: It will be released on apple platforms a year from now with OS X 10.6 Snow Leopard. Apple proposed it as an open standard. (through Khronos?) it will have a C based syntax (but what language today doesn't?) On the apple site you can read: http://www.apple.com/macosx/snowleopard/ Press Release: http://www.apple.com/pr/library/2008/06/09snowleopard.html Is there any other information about it?
