Dear OpenCL developers,

New production features:

  • Unified SDK with support for Intel® CPUs, Intel Xeon Phi coprocessors, and Intel® Graphics
  • Extended support for Intel Atom processors with Intel® HD Graphics and with PowerVR* G6400
  • Remote development for OpenCL™ on Android*
  • API-level debugging

New preview features:

  • OpenCL kernel step-by-step debugging on Intel Graphics

Hello everyone,

We’ve found a critical issue in the OpenCL runtime installation package for Intel Xeon Phi devices on Linux* operating systems.

We’re currently working to provide a fixed package which will be released soon


We’re truly sorry for the incontinence and will do our best to upload the fixed package as soon as possible.




Hi All,

The issue has been fixed and you can download the latest package. Again sorry for the inconvenience.



It only wants to give me a .exe download. This doesn't work quite as well as one might wish on Linux. Is the OS detection horked?

Yes, only an exe is available, and the file has 2013 in the name, rather than 2014.

+1. Tried Firefox and Opera in CentOS 6.5. The .exe file starts downloading automatically, without giving me any other download options.


is this thread still alive? As nobody answered the SDK 2014 download problems: there is NO "2014" version available under the everywhere published link. The provided .exe is Windows only and named "2013_r2" - and it's really the old version not only wrongly named, as after installation there is NO Visual Studio 2013 support, only the 2012 and 2010 are integrated :-(.

Please, provide us with the new version as w/out being able to integrate it to the VS2013 there is no use in the whole deprecated SDK.

Thank you,


I noticed all the same problems here too.  Also, the registration form is useless since you can fill it with almost random characters... :-)

Why not just provide a link?  I will download this on multiple machines and don't want to have to fill in the same form over and over!

Please fix, it's been a month since the supposed release.

Hi everybody,

We truly sorry for the confusion on the wrong link in our product page. We will fix it ASAP.

At the meantime, please register and download directly from:

After registration, you can copy and save the full URL and reuse it again on other machines.



Wow, much appreciated, thank you :-D!


The link is working for me now as well.

Thank you very much!

Currently experiencing major problems with downloading:


While having a download speed of 13.7 Mbit/s at, the Intel downloads seem to stop or continue at nearly 0kb/s rate.

Sometimes getting 404 errors when trying to reconnect to the download source.


Working fine in my system. Looks like a temporary slowdown in the download server. Please check again tomorrow (Monday) and let's us know if you still experience problems.
