Specifically target Sandy Bridge GPU (not CPU) with Beta

Hi all,
I was wondering if it was possible with Intel OpenCL 1.1 Beta to specifically target the GPU part of the Sandy Bridge processor. I want to offload millions of hash calculations to Sandy Bridge's GPU so that the CPU is relieved from the hashing task.
Looking forward to hear from you.

Are there any plans to release (in the near future) the SDK with support for Sandy Bridge's GPU?

As I mentioned before and in the FAQ section,Intel is evaluating when and where OpenCL support will intercept our products including our GPUs, but nothing we can share at this point.
