What is RenderScript? It is a framework designed by Google for performing data-parallel computation on Android-based devices. RenderScript kernels and intrinsics may be accelerated by an integrated GPU. Thanks to the tight integration of RenderScript with the Android OS through Java* APIs, you can perform data-parallel computations from Java applications efficiently. The RenderScript runtime also takes care of efficiently scheduling and parallelizing work on the right processor available on a device.
