Hi,

Could it be possible that one day we get Intel GPU applications made for Linux around the OpenCl package named Beignet ?

Well according to Boinc

Well according to Boinc Manager :

No work sent for Intel GPU because Binary Radio Pulsard Search Arecibo is not available for your type of computer (however it's working with the Nvidia card :/)

Beignet is depreciated. Intel

Beignet is depreciated. Intel came up with newer “neo” drivers for the 7th gen and later CPU. Neo is open source but they haven’t made it into any linux Disto that I am aware of. They are available for Windows from the Intel download centre.

When I had 6th gen i7’s I used Beignet with some success, but the built-in GPU will slow down all the CPU tasks so I stopped using them. The GPU tasks would take around 20 minutes but the performance hit to the other tasks was around an hour per thread and that was with a thread dedicated to the OpenCL task.
