Does Icc 15 contains the offload feature ?

Hi,

I'm running under Linux & Eclipse

I saw a paper that icc 15.0 Beta 2 contains offload feature, and I'm inteding to use the offload feature (#pragma offload target(gfx)).

1. How can I check if the icc15 I have contains this feature ?

2. (How can I be sure that the parallel threads run on the GPU instead of the CPU ?)

3. Does version 15.0 contains the 15.0 Beta 2 ?

Thanks

You're more likely to get the answer you want in the Intel C++ Compiler forum, so I've moved your thread there.

The Compute offload feature to Intel processor Graphics is supported fro Intel C++ Compiler 15.0 Update 1. You can make sure the workload is running on GPU by setting the env variable GFX_CPU_BACKUP=0 (https://software.intel.com/en-us/node/522477). In addition, Intel Vtune Amplifer 15.0 Update1 and above supports profiling the hardware events on GPU. Intel C++ Compiler 16.0 Beta ships the Debugger for Linux (supports both command line as well as eclipse IDE integration).

Thanks and Regards
Anoop
