GPU compute promises to deliver much better performance compared to CPU compute for application such a computer vision and machine learning, but the problem is that many developers may not have the right skills or time to leverage APIs such as OpenCL. So ARM decided to write their own ARM Compute library and has now released it under an MIT license.
The library works on Linux, Android or bare metal on armv7a (32bit) or arm64-v8a (64bit) architecture, and makes use of NEON, OpenCL, or NEON + OpenCL. You’ll need an OpenCL capable GPU, so all Mali-4xx GPUs won’t be fully supported, and you need an SoC with Mali-T6xx, T-7xx, T-8xx, or G71 GPU to make use of the library, except for NEON only functions.
