Intel OpenCL with an NVidia GPU?

Hi all,

I saw an earlier post saying that you cant run programs on an Nvidia GPU using Intel OpenCL
https://software.intel.com/en-us/forums/topic/370060

So I just wanted to ask whether this is still true or not. (e.g. I would like to run the General Matrix Multiply Example on my Nvidia GTX 970)

Thanks

OpenCL code written with Intel(R) Processor Graphics in mind should run on NVidia's Graphics Cards supporting OpenCL as long as the code is not using Intel specific OpenCL extensions. Some GEMM examples use Intel specific extensions and will not run, but some, which do not use them should run with no issues. You will have to use NVidia's OpenCL driver and runtime though to run on NVidia hardware.
