    Oh nice. Probably OpenCL is not far implemented in the free driver stack but anyway. I used darktable and quite liked it. So some accel won't hurt, even if you probably need the blob drivers for a real boost.

    Are there any benchmarks about how much OpenCL improves speed?

    I don't know if speed is all that important. I chose nx2 over lightroom because of control points and d-lighting. Speed is nice, but features are nicer.

    In order to have OpenCL with the FOSS drivers work from T.Stellard on the LLVM has to be accepted upstream, right???
