A How-To Overview: Tap into the Power of OpenCL* Development for Windows*

Whether your passion is media, imaging, vision, or analytics applications, the Intel® SDK for OpenCL™ Applications can make it happen—it’s built to enhance development, help you access the full complement of Intel® platform capabilities, and accelerate performance of heterogeneous compute apps.

This 3-part video series looks at Windows* 10 OpenCL* development, with specific focus on the SDK’s power when used with other components found in the Intel® System Studio 2019 tool suite.

We recommend watching them in order (step-by-step demonstrations and instructions build on each other). But we’re not the boss of you … do whatever feels right.

And be sure to download the tools before watching so you can follow along.

Part 1 – [7:28 min]
Cover the SDK basics—what it is and what it does. Use templates to get an OpenCL application building and executing quickly with Visual Studio* 2017 on contemporary Intel®-based CPU or GPU platforms.

Part 2 – [18:02 min]
Walkthrough an example manual build flow and helloCLworld program. Understand the basics of GUI tools and device capability references that can help with OpenCL development.

Part 3 – [8:56 min]
Understand the SDK tools used to augment OpenCL development, eliminating the need for just-in-time compilation. Understand the nature of OpenCL reference runtimes included with the SDK. Discern system registry contents and get a complete picture of installed implementations to help with deployment configuration challenges.
