LibreOffice Receives More OpenCL / GPU Support
Phoronix: LibreOffice Receives More OpenCL / GPU Support
Last month LibreOffice Calc received a lot of OpenCL/GPU support for various spreadsheet functions. Since then, besides picking up better multi-threaded support, the open-source office suite has implemented more support for OpenCL GPGPU computing...
Is AMD who's leading LibreOffice development with OpenCL
Anyone who's read great amounts of technology news will easily find that amd is leading the most inovative and experimental hardware technology whatever the area in common market (business or home entertaining). The time has come to "Kavari" (the first real APU).
In January 2014, AMD will release the world's first's APU (what have dynamic memory manager, the CPU and GPU sharing the same memory) what's is much faster than common CPUs for graphical working, acord to AMD comparisons until now. Obviously, they trying to consolidate the APU in the market, and i'm felling they are leading the right way.
All these graphical expensive video card's with high energy consuption these days, make the true APU not just an alternative, but the best choice for cost / benefit. I really believe the future is with APU, other companies will enter in this game too, but AMD is far away in front of them.
AMD is pushing the OpenCL development in Calc (in reality they may have been working in other projects too) because of their APU.
