Hello Shaohua

To perform calculations using a GPU the best option is to use the OpenCL standard; Intel offers two implementations:

The first is the Intel® OpenCL SDK: https://software.intel.com/en-us/intel-opencl https://software.intel.com/en-us/intel-opencl this implementation is designed to work on Windows.

The other is the Beignet project: http://www.freedesktop.org/wiki/Software/Beignet/ http://www.freedesktop.org/wiki/Software/Beignet/ this is an OpenCL open source implementation.

Here are some additional links with more information about OpenCL

I hope this information is useful to you

Thanks a lot. I see. I see the details about the two builders. My computer is core i5-4750 and HD graphics 4600, I thought both of the builders could not support this combination.

Hello Shaohua

As you can check on the Beignet page, under the section Supported Targets

  • 3rd Generation Intel Core Processors
  • Intel "Bay Trail" platforms with Intel HD Graphics
  • 4th Generation Intel Core Processors, need kernel patch currently, see the "Known Issues" section.
  • 5th Generation Intel Core Processors "Broadwell".

The OpenCL SDK has been replaced by the OpenCL Code Builder, that comes with the https://software.intel.com/en-us/intel-inde Intel® Integrated Native Developer Experience (Intel® INDE), as you can check on the release notes: https://software.intel.com/file/447641/download https://software.intel.com/file/447641/download (page 3), 4th. Gen. Intel Core is also supported by this software.

The patch for Beignet can be found here: https://01.org/zh/beignet/downloads/linux-kernel-patch-hsw-support Linux kernel patch for HSW support | 01.org

I hope this information is useful to you.

Best Regards,

Adolfo Sanchez
