A club, you know? Like that club where Brad Pitt kicked Ed Norton's ass!! Wouldn't that be soooo cool!!

People will help you for no reason...

This weekend I tried out Beignet v0.9.2 as trying out the newest Intel OpenCL code has been on my TODO list for a while and it's been working out rather well in my initial tests. Read more
