OpenVINO Mac OSX - Intel GPU Not supported?

Does the OpenVINO officially support Intel GPUs in Mac OSX environment? When I try listing the available devices only CPU shows up. I have the Macbook 16 inch with Intel UHD Graphics 630 built-in. Thank you. 

 

 

raylo@Raymonds-MacBook-Pro demos % python3
Python 3.7.9 (default, Sep  9 2020, 00:09:07)
[Clang 11.0.3 (clang-1103.0.32.62)] on darwin
Type "help", "copyright", "credits" or "license" for more information.
>>> from openvino.inference_engine import IECore
>>> ie = IECore()
>>> print(ie.available_devices)  # prints ['CPU']
['CPU']
>>> exit()

Hi Raymond,

 

Currently, as of 2020.4 OpenVINO does not officially support Intel GPUs in Mac OSX environment.

 

According to the system requirement,

Intel® Iris® Pro & Intel® HD Graphics is only supported for

  • Ubuntu 18.04.3 LTS (64 bit)
  • Windows 10 (64 bit)
  • CentOS 7.4 (64 bit)

How about running OpenVINO on VMware or similar? Any suggestions around that? Thank you.

Hi Raymond,


I've ran OpenVINO inside VirtualBox on the Mac Mini.

The GPU plugin could not be run.

It looks like the virtual machine would also require that the Host OS to support GPU plugin implementation for the VM to access it.

Hi Raymond,


Intel will no longer monitor this thread since we have provided a solution. If you need any additional information from Intel, please submit a new question.
