    I think that the idea of simply recompiling the whole Gentoo system with this is extremely optimistic.

    Although this is unlikely to ever replace GCC (same with CLang), it's always great to have more open source compilers out there.

    thats wrong you can calculate speculative on multiple cores

    Would OpenCL run at the speed of the card or at the speed of the driver optimizations? (ignoring that it has to pass through some software layers to get to the card)

    OpenCL kernels running on the GPU should not be impacted by driver optimization while they are running on the GPU, right?

    i think its a mix of both hardware speed and driver optimizations.

    At least this time it's software that's already compatible with Linux, unlike the Lightworks video editor, which we probably won't see natively supported on linux for another 5-10 years.
