What is OpenCL? - Open Computing Language - a framework for writing programs that execute in parallel across CPUs (central processing units), GPUs (graphics processing units), DSPs (digital signal processors) and FPGAs (field-programmable gate arrays). OpenCL is by a non-profit technology consortium Khronos Group, initially developed by Apple. OpenCL can be used to give an application graphics processing unit power for non-graphical computing. OpenCL consists of a set of headers and a shared object. An installable client driver loader (ICD loader) must be installed on the OS for it to work. (taken from wiki).
