About the OpenCL™ Technology

OpenCL™ (Open Computing Language) standard provides a uniform programming environment for software developers to write portable general-purpose parallel code for high-performance computing servers, client computer systems, and other computing systems. OpenCL is developed by multiple companies through the Khronos* OpenCL committee, and Intel is a key contributor to the OpenCL standard since its inception.

This reference manual targets the implementation of the OpenCL standard for Intel® Core™ and Intel® Xeon® processors.
