If you’re into hardware acceleration and heterogeneous computing, this is a good read. Currently, FPGAs are not commonly used by programmers to accelerate their workloads due to the difficulty of hardware design compared to software. OpenCL support potentially changes the game by allowing FPGA accelerators to be used in a manner similar to GPGPUs. This will be interesting!
