Intel provides new Integrated OpenCL development experience

OpenCL support at Intel is now going mainstream with a full integration into Intel’s portfolio of software development suites. The Intel SDK for OpenCL Applications features are now integrated into various development tools under the new name of OpenCL Code Builder. The different solutions are tailored to the target development environment: for mobile and PC development, the OpenCL Code Builder is now integrated into Intel Integrated Native Developer Experience (Intel INDE); For media server usages, the code builder is now integrated into Intel Media Server Studio. For other usages, a standalone Linux* version of the OpenCL Code Builder is also available. Two major new features are now supported: Commercial OpenCL Linux driver for Intel Processor Graphics is available with Intel Media Server Studio; OpenCL 2.0 support for 5th Generation Intel Core Processors with fine-grained SVM on Intel HD and Iris Graphics is available in Intel INDE.
