Beignet is an open source implementation of the OpenCL specification, supporting the Intel OpenCL runtime library and compiler. OpenCL defines an implementation of parallel computation, one of the most dramatic shifts in the industry providing new performance opportunity through software engineering. With OpenCL, many programs (2D rendering, image/video processing, etc.) can be dramatically accelerated by the GPU.
