    intel aero GPU

    anemos

      Hello,

       

      is there a GPU on the aero platform?

       

      If yes, how can we program it? c language library prefered.

       

      Thanks.

          Hi anemos,

          The Intel Aero Compute Board has an Intel Atom x7-Z8750 processor with a GPU. You should be able to program it with APIs such as OpenCL that are Linux compatible. I have not done this myself, but it sounds really interesting. Please give it a try and share your results with the community.

          Regards,
          Jesus

            Hello thanks for the answer

             

            if opencl is really supported, this is awesome I will test it and get you posted.

              Unfortunatly the openCL seems to be unsupported with the integrated GPU

               

              See the message I get when installing the itnel opencl SDK on intel aero

              There are one or more optional unresolved issues. It is highly recommended to

              resolve them all before you continue. You can fix them without exiting the setup

              program and re-check. Or you can exit the setup program, fix them and run the

              setup program again.

                actually, openCL does work on integrated atom GPU.

                 

                It does not work with the official intel opencl SDK but it does with the open source beignet project

                https://www.freedesktop.org/wiki/Software/Beignet/

                 

                I tried with success the HelloWorld example : opencl-book-examples/src/Chapter_2/HelloWorld at master · victusfate/opencl-book-examples · GitHub

                 

                here is the compile command : g++ HelloWorld.cpp -lOpenCL

                 

                and the result of the generated a.out file is

                The GPU is correctly detected. I don't have a benchmark of it's performance though

                  Do you have a Yocto layer for the Beignet project you might be willing to share anemos? How did you build it for the Intel Aero?
