we would like to provide OpenCL support to Intel Core and Xeon processors and Intel Xeon Phi coprocessors on our cluster. On the online documentation I read that "For Intel® Xeon Phi™ coprocessor support, you must install the OpenCL runtime 14.2 here, and the Intel® Manycore Platform Software Stack (Intel® MPSS) 3.3 here".
Our cluster has around 380 nodes, each node equipped with 2 octa-core Intel(R) Xeon(R) CPU E5-2630 v3 @ 2.40GHz and 2 16GB Intel Xeon-Phi 7120P Accelerator. The OS is CentOS Linux release 7.0.1406, and the MPSS is 3.5-1 version.
I read on a very old post (https://software.intel.com/en-us/forums/topic/536938) that "I (Yuri Kulakov,Intel) may just confirm information regarding approved MPSS version. Intel OpenCL™ Runtime 14.2 was validated with MPSS 3.3 (as per release notes)", apologies if I missed additional posts on the matter. Since that post dates back to last year, I was wondering if it still applies, in particular:
1) does it mean that the OpenCL runtime won't work with our MPSS 3.5?
2) does it mean that we cannot know if it will work - hence we can try to install the Runtime and the Code Builder?
Thank you very much in advance,
