Hashbtc.jpgThis page is a stub. Help by expanding it. An OpenCL miner is a bitcoin miner that uses the OpenCL framework to perform the hashing computations. When used with a modern GPU, this can produce hash rates orders of magnitude higher than what can be achieved with a CPU. Hashing on a GPU requires an OpenCL or CUDA compatible graphics card.

The python Poclbm open source OpenCL bitcoin miner was created by m0mchil[1] based on the open source CUDA client originally released by puddinpop[2]. Subsequently the java DiabloMiner based on m0mchil's was created by Diablo-D3[3]. Puddinpop has also released a C++ OpenCL client capable of being compiled into the GUI client or daemon, or as a stand alone RPC miner[4].

See the Mining Hardware Comparison page for detailed statistics on the hash rates that can be achieved with various hardware.
