Submission + - Google blocked OpenCL on Android 4.3 (streamcomputing.eu)

Vincent77 writes: Thanks to the work of ARM in the beginning of this year, we could use OpenCL on the Nexus 4 and 10 and starting to port the various libraries to Android, initiating the same revolution of accelerated software on smartphones and tablets as we had on the desktop. Google was not happy with the competition for their RenderScript Compute and abruptly blocked access to the OpenCL-driver in Android 4.3. Noteworthy is that Google did not have the choice to simply remove the driver itself, as ARM implemented the RenderScript-compiler on top of OpenCL.
