- Seamless debugging experience of OpenCL Kernels as they are being executed on Intel® Processor Graphics with real-time inspection of variable and registers across the hardware execution units threads
- Supported by GDB and Microsoft* Visual Studio 2015
- Supported only on 6th Generation Intel Core™ Processors with Intel Iris™, Intel Iris Pro and HD Graphics
- Standalone distribution of Intel® SDK for OpenCL Applications for Linux* including standalone OpenCL driver for 5th and 6th Generation Intel® Core Processors with Intel Iris™ Pro and HD Graphics.
- Including support for open source implementation of the OpenCL specification for Intel Processor Graphics (https://01.org/beignet)
- Advanced features set in Kernel Development Framework – Eclipse plug-in
- Full support for Microsoft* Visual Studio 2015 (added missing features)
- New kernel and host level analysis features
- New kernel analysis report with compute matrices and deep level analysis views in Kernel Development Framework
- SVM support and Build from Binary in Kernel Development Framework
- Cross mapping support in Intel Processor Graphics assembly view (from assembly code to OpenCL code)
- UI improvement and functional stabilizations
- Intel® SDK for OpenCL™ Applications 2016 includes all the features for OpenCL development for Android and Windows* previously available in Intel® INDE OpenCL™ Code Builder 2015 R2 and all features for Linux* development which available in Code Builder for Intel® Media Server Studio.
- For a full list of features, see the Intel® SDK for OpenCL™ Applications Developer Guide.
From release notes:
"Standalone distribution of Intel® SDK for OpenCL Applications for Linux* including standalone OpenCL driver for 5th and 6th Generation Intel® Core Processors with Intel Iris™ Pro and HD Graphics. "
so the standalone Linux driver in 2016 SDK supports 6th gen Skylake iGPU vs the driver announced three weeks ago ("Announcing Standalone OpenCL™ 1.2 Driver for Intel® HD, Iris™, and Iris™ Pro Graphics for Linux (64-bit)") that didn't support it?
The open source version of the driver (Beignet) on 01.org supports 6th Generation Intel® Core Processors with Intel Iris™ Pro and HD Graphics.
The standalone driver supports 4th and 5th Gen processors.
The SDK supports both drivers.
Sorry for the confusion!
my system : Windows 7(x64), 2gb ram , Intel® HD Graphics 2000 for 2nd Generation Intel® Core™ Processors .
Now can i run Intel® SDK for OpenCL™ Applications 2016 in my laptop
Thank's in advance
What is the difference between beignet (https://01.org/beignet/downloads) and the intel SDK (https://software.intel.com/en-us/intel-opencl/download) you propose ? They are meant to reach the same goal, right ? Looks like beignet is open source and intel SDK is not : what beignet (SDK) offers that the SDK (beignet) do not ? Is beignet "ahead" of the SDK (expermenting things for the later SDK) ? Are they independant ?... If yes, why, what's the point ?
The Intel® SDK for OpenCL™ Applications and related drivers/runtimes are recommended for the most up to date features, tools, and development environment on the latest hardware. SDK and driver components are in separate packages. For more info: https://software.intel.com/en-us/articles/opencl-drivers.
Beignet is a separate project with a different goal: open source OpenCL GPU access for a broader range of HW and OSes, including many older platforms. Features are not expected to match and neither is a "preview" for the other. Beignet provides components for compiling and running OpenCL applications but is not intended to work with the rich set of developer features provided in Intel® SDK for OpenCL™ Applications.
