OpenGL shaders and OpenGL compute can do a subset of compute languages like OpenCL and CUDA. It has been designed with graphics in mind, and are a good fit for image manipulation and matrix operations.

Advantages

OpenGL (ES) works on all GPUs, and software can be made working on a wide variation of devices. OpenGL drivers are often more mature, as they have been around for many years. If portability is at stake, OpenGL shaders are a great choice.

Hardware

It works on various types of hardware:

  • X86 GPUs:
    • AMD
    • Nvidia
    • Intel
  • ARM GPUs:
    • Vivante (automotivce)
    • ARM MALI
    • Imagination (Apple iPhone)
    • Qualcomm
    • NVidia
