Does Intel acceleration cards support OpenCL?

According to the platform selector guide (https://www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/programmable/solutions/acceleration-hub/platform-selector-gu...), acceleration card with Arria 10 GX can be programmed with OpenVINO, but I am not sure whether they are supported by OpenCL as well.

OpenCL is certainly supported. You need to download and install the Acceleration Stack to use OpenCL on that board. You can find it here:

Hi, thank you for replying!

While the acceleration card with Arria 10 GX does supports OpenCL, I still can't find any relevant information about N3000 and D5005. I have already read their counterparts of the website you gave:

 

https://www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/programmable/products/boards_and_kits/dev-kits/altera/intel-...

 

https://www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/programmable/products/boards_and_kits/dev-kits/altera/intel-...

yet obviously OpenCL is not mentioned. Do you know whether those two support OpenCL?

The page for the D5005 board does actually mention OpenCL support in the table (OpenCL Software) but the one for the N3000 board doesn't. I am sure the D5005 board supports OpenCL since I have personally used OpenCL on that board, but I am not sure the N3000 board; it is likely that it doesn't support OpenCL.

Thank you for replying!

I rechecked the page for D5005 and OpenCL IS mentioned in the table. Now I feel really embarrassed about myself😅 , and I don't even know why I made such a stupid mistake from the first place.

Anyway, thank you for your help!​
