I have a Core I5 4430 processor and running Ubuntu 13.10. I Just installed the brand new installer for Intel drivers (and the drivers by running it, of course). I thought now I will finally be able to utilize the GPGPU that is part of the processor, but I can't.
My test cases include BOINC running World Community Grid computations, telling me there is no GPUs it can use, and a bitcoin mining software telling me the same. I have a Haswell Core I7 computer running Windows 8 that does utilize the GPGPU and tells me that specifically, and in addition I see the very major difference in computation power (about X3).
What can I do to make my Ubuntu utilize the Intel Core I5 4430 GPGPU?
Unfortunatelly OpenCL isn't supported by our Linux graphics open source stack released quarterly.
So Installer won't be able to help you here.
Your options are either closed source http://software.intel.com/en-us/vcsource/tools/opencl or in development/experimental open source http://www.freedesktop.org/wiki/Software/Beignet/.
Sorry for not being able to help you further.
I isntalled Beignet and OpenCL is still not supported.
I understand this is probably not the right place to ask about it. Is there another (formal) place I can ask? I understand it is written by Intel. Am I wrong?
The closed source does not support my hradware/software configuration, so I can't use it.
