Intel® OpenCL SDK is an implementation of the OpenCL* 1.1 standard optimized for Intel® CoreTM processors, running on Microsoft* Windows* 7 and Windows Vista* operating systems.
This Alpha software brings OpenCL* for the CPU in support of OpenCL developers desiring CPU advantages found on many OpenCL* workloads. OpenCL* language and Application Programming Interface (API) enables you to seamlessly take advantage of the Intel® CoreTM processor benefits such as Intel® Streaming SIMD Extensions (Intel® SSE) utilization and Multi-Core scalability.
OpenCL* (Open Computing Language) is the first open, royalty-free standard for general-purpose parallel programming of heterogeneous systems. OpenCL* provides a uniform programming environment for software developers to write efficient, portable code for client computer systems, high-performance computing servers, and handheld devices using a diverse mix of multi-core CPUs and other parallel processors.
