Chip Shot: Intel Announces Comprehensive Developer Environment for OpenCL Applications

Today Intel announced the new version of Intel ® SDK for OpenCL* Applications. As visual applications continuously evolve, it is important that graphic capabilities and performance keep pace with these rapid changes. To meet these demands, Intel is offering developers a free, unified development environment that offers offline compilation, debugging, code advising and code samples. Through this development environment, developers are able to leverage the graphic capabilities of OpenCL API on Intel® HD Graphics and Intel® Iris Graphics. OpenCL is supported on Intel’s CPUs, Intel® graphics technology, and the Intel® Xeon Phi™ coprocessor.
