for the OpenCL 2013 R3 SDK I noticed that there is OpenCL support for the former "Bay Trail" Atom Z3000 series of processors. I'm just wondering if this also includes support for their embedded counterparts out of the "Bay Trail" Atom E3800 series?
If support is not included yet in the SDK, are there plans to extend the OpenCL support also to the Atom E3800 series?
The OpenCL SDK supports "Bay Trail" platforms with OpenCL support for Windows 7/8/8.1.
For OpenCL support on the Intel Atom E3800 series, you will need to talk with your system integrator or OEM that provide you with the system . In supported configurations, most likely the SDK will work for you as well.
thanks a lot for your response, that's great to hear.
Some manufacturers indeed specify OpenCL 1.2 compliance for their Atom E3800 series boards, some others are not that clear in their datasheets. Think we'll get some E3800 hardware soon and simply try out.
But correct me if I'm wrong: Isn't OpenCL support not only defined by the SoC itself, its graphics driver package and OpenCL SDK (all parts presumably from Intel) and the operating system? What's the part of OEMs in this process? Do they need to modify e.g. the graphics driver package specific to their boards?
You got it right,
The main dependency is the graphics driver version supported by the OEM. The SDK itself supports Graphics Driver version 15.33 and above for Bay Trail (Intel Atom E3000/Z3000 series).
Hope this help,
