    OpenCL 1.1 /  CUDA Comparison

      ATI Stream SDK v2.2 / CUDA Toolkit 3.2

      Are there any comparisons on the web? I like to know the differences in terms of feature sets.

          Definitely CUDA is much more mature and hence very stable as compared to current openCL implementations. It might also have some features which are presently not supported in OpenCL.

          But OpenCL is open Standard and cross platform. This makes openCL the preferable programming language of future. The implementations are rapidly evolving and new features are added in every release.

          Anyhow I am not much familiar with CUDA and you might get more info about it at NVIDIA forums.

          Thanks

              I asked already in the General CUDA GPU Computing Discussion forum on forums.nvidia.com but so far there are no relevant replies. I'm surprised not even nVidia has a detailed feature comparison table to sell CUDA.
