  • Hi all.

    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?

     

    Itai.

  • 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.
