OpenCL™ Drivers and Runtimes for Intel® Architecture

What to Download

By downloading a package from this page, you accept the End User License Agreement.

Installation has two parts:

  1. Intel® SDK for OpenCL™ Applications Package
  2. Driver and library(runtime) packages

The SDK includes components to develop applications.  Usually on a development machine the driver/runtime package is also installed for testing.  For deployment you can pick the package that best matches the target environment.

The illustration below shows some example install configurations. 

 

SDK Packages

Please note: A GPU/CPU driver package or CPU-only runtime package is required in addition to the SDK to execute applications
