    OpenCL gets a boost from INTC

    AMD must be jumping for joy...

    CHIPMAKER Intel has released an OpenCL 1.2 software development kit (SDK) for its upcoming Haswell processors.

    Intel's decision to support full profile OpenCL in its HD Graphics 4000 core marked the first time the firm acknowledged the power of GPGPUs. Now it seems that Intel is perfectly happy to help developers make use of the GPU for computing purposes in addition to its CPU cores.

    Given the prevalence of Intel's GPUs in the market, the firm's support of OpenCL is vital to widespread adoption. The problem for Intel is that should developers make good use of its GPU and its full computing capabilities, the firm's investment in CPU engineering could be undermined.
