    Phoronix: Benchmarking The Current Intel OpenCL NEO Driver Compute Performance On Ubuntu 19.04

    With the recent release of Ubuntu 19.04, the new Intel OpenCL NEO compute stack is available in the archive as "intel-opencl-icd" for easy installation. The former Intel open-source OpenCL "Beignet" driver remains available too, for which we took it for a fun round of benchmarking comparison for seeing how these Intel OpenCL Linux drivers currently compete to just running on the CPU via POCL.

    Seems to be shaping up very nicely. Too bad it doesn't work on the HD2000-4000 GPUs (or does it?)

      Broadwell is oldest generation supported. Pre-BDW there is still, of course, Beignet.

        Too bad LibreOffice no longer works on their OpenCL implementation in Calc. It has been years since the last time I saw it working, at last in Intel/AMD GPUs. That was a nice user case for OpenCL on a largely used program.

          not yet, I believe in time it will work maybe for 2020 for next ubuntu lts and all distros who use it but it's good to know their opencl is the same for linux and windows and work for cpu/gpu and support for opencl 2.2 is coming soon

            you can do a trick for that, install first the closed source intel opencl only cpu for linux and then beignet, works with debian and ubuntu at least, I test myself, for sandybridge only the cpu works with 1.2, limitations from sandy gpu

              Intel is working hard to take the fight to CUDA and that's an excellent thing. I hope AMD keeps up its efforts too and the new Rocm-driven supercomputer they're launching is certainly encouraging. It's getting to a point where you now seriously need to be looking at your skillset/codebase if you've been suckered by Nvidia because if you're CUDA-only, the future suddenly doesn't look very bright.

              On another point it would have been interesting to see some benchmarks here for this integrated GPU compute vs some discrete cards, for example an RX580.
