I''m from Nvidia CUDA background, there Kernel code will be executed only on CUDA core; If i'm using Intel OpenCL SDK, where will the kernel code be executed? Will it be on GPGPU (if present) or on Intel CPU with AVX?

Hi Prasanna,

With the Intel OpenCL SDK/Runtime you will use the CPU and AVX/SSE. If you have another GPU and another OpenCL runtime, say Nvidia's installed you could choose to run your code on the GPU.
