Just to clarify what Claudio said, we're (or I'm) aiming for support for 
ANY OpenCL compliant gear (as good as possible) but we don't quite 
"support" it (we simply can not test every toaster and 
firmware/driver/runtime version). OTOH we don't strictly support 
*anything* in Jumbo - every single part of it is best-effort. Right now, 
due to quality problems with most anything else, NVIDIA (using their 
closed-source drivers) works better than most anything else.
