#1 NumberFields@home Support for Intel GPUs

Post by Newshound »

I just added support for Intel GPUs. There are 2 versions - 64 bit linux and 64 bit windows, both require openCL 1.1 or higher.

I don't have an Intel GPU, so I can't test them. But it's the same openCL code that works on other GPUs, so in theory they should work. For the linux version, it was just a matter of downloading the Intel openCL SDK and then linking against Intel's include files and libraries. For the windows version, I cross compiled using mingw64 as I do with AMD/Nvidia cards.

Since they are new and untested, I made them beta apps.
