Open CL vs. CUDA?
fragro   12/11/2015 12:03:40 PM
Seems like Facebook is keeping their options open by choosing OpenCl.

Recently Discussions were also rather going in the direction of AMD supporting CUDA besides OpenCL might not be good for the more widespread adoption of OpenCL:-)

On the other hand, even the FPGA community is increasingly adopting OpenCL (e.g. Altera). Let's see. What I am missing is a discussion of implementation difficulties in FPGAs (compared to GPUs?) mentioned in other articles about Microsoft and Baidu's use cases. And also I am wondering if anybody could shed some more light on the reason, why FPGAs are more efficient than GPUs for the same application, and if this is going to disappear.
