Hi,

I wonder if it is possible to use an FPGA as the hardware for OpenCL.

I was looking for some board of the Altera Cyclone series: http://www.altera.com/devices/fpga/cyclone-v-fpgas/cyv-index.jsp, because of the Altera's SDK for OpenCL http://www.altera.com/products/software/opencl/opencl-index.html, but I wonder if the API will work with the version they have, the SDK is built for OpenCL v1.0.

According to the article about how to install OpenCL(https://www.mql5.com/en/articles/690), the support for OpenCL in MQL5 is provided starting with version 1.1, but I couldn't find any SDK built for v1.1 nor higher, from any provider.

Any insights?
