Does IPP 7.0 or 9.0 use the GPU when performing calculations like FFT?

Hi Daniel,

Both IPP 7.0 and 9.0 use only CPU resources.

Best regards,
Valentin

This brings up the issue of the (intel) CPU competing with the (non-Intel) GPU when doing high-performance computing. See emerging technologies like OpenCL and Apple Metal. In the light of this competition, I find it (more than) absurd that Intel is deprecating threaded execution inside IPP (but not inside MKL). This is like Intel digging its own grave.
