AMD OpenCL APP SDK Beats Intel's Own SDK On Ivy Bridge
Phoronix: AMD OpenCL APP SDK Beats Intel's Own SDK On Ivy Bridge
Here are some OpenCL benchmarks from the Intel Ivy Bridge CPU. Being compared though is AMD's APP SDK, which does support running OpenCL on x86 CPUs, to Intel's CPU-based OpenCL SDK for Linux. To some surprise, AMD's Accelerated Parallel Processing SDK when using the Ivy Bridge CPU is actually faster than the Intel OpenCL SDK on the same hardware.
