    Phoronix: Beignet: OpenCL/GPGPU Comes For Ivy Bridge On Linux

    For the open-source Radeon and Nouveau graphics drivers on Linux, OpenCL/GPGPU support has been implemented via the "Clover" OpenCL state tracker with the Radeon/Nouveau drivers built atop the Gallium3D driver architecture. While Intel's latest hardware supports OpenCL with its graphics core, their open-source Linux driver has lacked any support, but that is changing...

    So this depends on X?
    So how do you use this on Wayland?

    How do you use this on servers for GPGPU computing?

    I don't understand the technicalities behind it, but wayland is developed by intel, I doubt they would undermine their own project.

    Intel graphics is not meant to be used on servers, there are no xeons with it, and they have a specific product for that: xeon phi.

    several X11 components
    It's hard to say exactly what that is supposed to mean. You could probably say Wayland uses several X11 components, so maybe it's not really a dependency like you think it is.

    Red face Yay!

    I'm sooo excited about that! Maybe next year I will be able to use GIMP and Darktable with GPU OpenCL on my Intel ultrabook!

    So why doesn't this work with Sandy parts? Afaik the GPU architectures are quite similar, if not identical

    No, they aren't. Ivy was the first hardware from Intel able to support OpenCL fully - i think it was the same hardware limitation AMD had in the HD4000 series, but don't hold me to that.
