OpenCL support is never going to happen, Otoy instead works on a compiler to directly use the octane Cuda code on AMD GPU and on other plateform.
Otoy already showed a video of Octane working with a AMD card but aparently was just a prototype.
From the GTC presentation we may think it could be ready eventually after summer, but you can't trust this date more than a rumor.
Thanks from the response. So you mean to say that Octane will never have 'native' OpenCL support, but there's a workaround in process for AMD GPUs? If so, that's great news!
