Reference

OpenCLLink allows Mathematica to use the OpenCL parallel computing language. It contains functions that facilitate loading user-defined OpenCL functions into Mathematica. OpenCLLink also integrates OpenCL with existing Mathematica development tools, allowing a high degree of automation and control.
