Detailed Description

Deliver Hardware-Accelerated Video Applications on Intel® Platforms

This document provides architectural details, supplements to the API documentation in the manuals, and coding examples to help developers utilize the amazing capabilities of Intel® GPUs for media applications.

The two main paths for application developers to access GPU media processing capabilities are
1. Intel® Media SDK
2. Intel® SDK for OpenCL™ applications

Both are available together in Intel® Media Server Studio for Linux* and Windows*, and as standalone client packages for Windows.

Product and Performance Information


Intel's compilers may or may not optimize to the same degree for non-Intel microprocessors for optimizations that are not unique to Intel microprocessors. These optimizations include SSE2, SSE3, and SSSE3 instruction sets and other optimizations. Intel does not guarantee the availability, functionality, or effectiveness of any optimization on microprocessors not manufactured by Intel. Microprocessor-dependent optimizations in this product are intended for use with Intel microprocessors. Certain optimizations not specific to Intel microarchitecture are reserved for Intel microprocessors. Please refer to the applicable product User and Reference Guides for more information regarding the specific instruction sets covered by this notice.
