This is a test of the new OpenCL library available in OS X 10.6. So all calculations are on the GPU instead of CPU.
I used memos openframeworks extension (msavisuals.com/openframeworks_addons ). sketch runs smoothly with around 50fps. Particlecount is 307'200.
Vimeo compression killed the particles. Download or watch a higher resolution here: underdoeg.com/uploads/movies/openCLImageParticles2.mov
