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!

Hi,

Is there any way to perform a silent installation from cmd/ps in Windows?

Hi Jacub,

Try to run intel_sdk_for_opencl_setup_6.0.0.1049.exe with -? or --help options - explore the command line options available to you.

Hi Jayesh,

You will be able to run it, but you should only be able to use it for the CPU OpenCL runtime, as we don't support OpenCL on the 2nd Gen processor GPU.

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 ?

Hi Franck,

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.
