Maybe OpenCL speeds things up in other projects, but for this project it's just a waste. Mini Collatz and Mini Collatz using OpenCL both run for about the same time and generate the same amount of credit. The only difference between OpenCL and non is that OpenCL tasks run on all available cores, which means that it is the only task running. Am I missing something? Was OpenCL used for something other than optimizing the tasks on all cores?
