This short tutorial provides a brief introduction to Khronos SPIR. It touches on the differences between a SPIR binary and an Intel proprietary Intermediate Binary, demonstrates ways to create SPIR binaries using tools shipped with Intel® SDK for OpenCL™ Applications , and explains how to use SPIR binaries in your OpenCL program.
General Matrix Multiply
In this tutorial, we will give an in-depth presentation of the architecture and micro-architecture of the media and graphics accelerator. We will explain the tradeoff between general purpose compute and hardware fixed functions. We will discuss the advantages and disadvantages of on-die integration. We will present the various programming models that are supported. We will present some...
While Image convolution is not as effective with the new Read-Write images functionality, any image processing technique that needs be done in place may benefit from the Read-Write images. One example of a process that could be used effectively is image composition. In OpenCL 1.2 and earlier, images were qualified with the “__read_only” and __write_only” qualifiers. In the OpenCL 2.0, images can...
