I am glad to announce the availability of Intel® SDK for OpenCL™ Applications 2016 for Windows*, CentOS*, and Ubuntu*. Please visit https://software.intel.com/en-us/intel-opencl to download the version for your platform. For details check out Release Notes.
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!
my system : Windows 7(x64), 2gb ram , Intel® HD Graphics 2000 for 2nd Generation Intel® Core™ Processors .
Now can i run Intel® SDK for OpenCL™ Applications 2016 in my laptop
Thank's in advance
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 ?
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.
