I've just posted a new blog on Merkle tree hashing with SHA256 at its core using OpenCL 2.0.

 

In it, I talk about why SHA256 is not suitable for GPU compute and how we can implement Merkle tree hashing on GPU for big files and get very good throughput. Please check it out if you have a minute: http://developer.amd.com/community/blog/2015/05/29/merkle-tree-hashing-using-opencl-2-0/
