Intel Cherryview Now Supports OpenCL On Linux

Intel's been working on open-source Linux support for Cherryview for more than one year while finally one of the last pieces of the hardware enablement puzzle has landed: OpenCL support for Cherryview.

Cherryview represents the new 2015 Atom SoCs built on the 14nm "Airmont" architecture and the graphics cores are derived from Broadwell. The Cherryview Linux support has been in place for quite some time with the OpenGL support having settled through numerous Linux kernel DRM and Mesa driver updates. The last major piece of supporting the Cherryview Atom graphics on Linux is the OpenCL support.

Landing this month within Beignet, Intel's open-source OpenCL project, is the GPU compute support for Cherryview. Added to Beignet by the Intel China developers responsible for this software component was the CHV back-end (a.k.a. Cherryview) and Cherryview runtime support. The work is just a few hundred lines of code since Beignet has long supported Broadwell.

This OpenCL support for Cherryview should land in the next Beignet update, v1.0.4. Stay tuned for Intel Cherryview Linux benchmarks as soon as more Atom tablets/low-power devices start shipping.
