    Apple may be trying to not-so-delicately nudge everyone to move their code from CUDA to OpenCL, but Iíve seen a first-hand failure of AMDís OpenCL support with V-Ray RT for Maya. Chaos Group built V-Ray RT on OpenCL, but after extensive work trying to get the GPU variant of its RT render engine running on AMD hardware and an effort by yours truly to light a fire under Apple and AMD, Chaos Group gave up and ported it to CUDA instead. So V-Ray RTís GPU mode only works with OpenCL and CUDAóon Nvidia hardware.
    OpenCL isn't very good in reality and AMD drivers and OpenCL support is a joke. If you want to get real work done, you can only depend on Nvidia.
