Article on GPU acceleration in PP at Toms Hardware
Jun 13, 2012

Snippet:

"Tom's Hardware: There are a bunch of new features and optimizations in CS6, but only one OpenCL-enhanced feature: Blur Gallery. Not to be tactless, but why only one? Is this just a toe in the water? Or are other factors involved?

Russell Williams: You have to start somewhere. The OpenCL ecosystem is just getting there, and we don't have historical expertise in this. OpenCL availability and maturity has only recently become a reality. We intend to do a lot more with it in CS7. Also, we pay close attention to relative returns when looking for features to accelerate. Like, the eye dropper is already fast enough. You have to speed up features that really are disruptively slow to common workflows. You want to make an impact to users, not just speed uncommon things up simply because they're there."
