So originally, I thought that OpenCL was just a concept that allowed the use of the GPU to act as a secondary CPU for calculations and such... But according to http://www.electronista.com/articles/08/12/08/opencl.10.ratified/ it says that it also takes full advantage of multi-core systems as well.

I thought the multi-core optimization code in 10.6 was called grand central.

So is OpenCL something that will benefit the Mini community at all when 10.6 comes out, or am I misreading the article?

Thanks.

[Edit] http://www.macworld.com/article/136921/2008/11/opencl.html this website also says that the Mini's will see some improvement as well.

The way I read it, OpenCL is a low level thing. You need to (re)write your application to take advantage of it. Grand Central is a higher level thing. If you structure your application correctly, Grand central can deploy it efficiently across multiple cores along with everything else the computer is doing.

At this stage, there is a lot or marketing speak in these things. Mini's seeing benefits could mean your mini will be able to Fold@Home a little faster than before.
