Laugh well dolphin has started a graphics plugin for it and just thinking about what they said in the forums about it crossed my mind what if the pcsx2 team utilize it aswell

The Dolphin emulator isn't(and won't, really) seeing a lot of speed benefits from OpenCL. From what I've read following their SVNs, it's pretty much only intended to help load textures a little faster, and doesn't really change anything in the core code.

As Jake said earlier, it's just another little novelty that doesn't really do much for emulation.

Oh yeah, OpenCL is also not a new plugin, it's just new code to work with the existing plugins. They're um, they're changing a LOT about their video plugins over there at the Dolphin team.

Yeah we could use OpenCL to do texture swizzling a little faster, in theory. But I'd rather focus on implementing a better texture cache in front of the PS2's GIF unit, which would remove the need to do nearly as much swizzling in the first place.

Probably not, as the things that OpenCL would be used for would not affect anything in the GSDx code necessary for a speedup.
