Is it nvidia limiting the opencl performance > intentionally I think not intentionally, but it is common for OpenCL implementations to be slower than CUDA implementations of the same things. Also, Nvidia cards are just slower than ATI/AMD (of the same year and price point) at what we're doing. GTX 570 is newer than 4890, though. > or my codes aren't scaling well in their architecture? Yes, or at least some tuning will be needed to get this to run faster. With Lukas' CUDA code, I actually get similar speed to the above without tuning, but it increases to 29k c/s with very minor tuning (THREADS and BLOCKS settings, target architecture setting for the compiler).
