Intel(R) Graphics Compute Runtime for oneAPI Level Zero and OpenCL(TM) Driver
The Intel(R) Graphics Compute Runtime for oneAPI Level Zero and OpenCL(TM) Driver is an open source project providing compute API support (Level Zero, OpenCL) for Intel graphics hardware architectures (HD Graphics, Xe).
What is NEO?
NEO is the shorthand name for Compute Runtime contained within this repository. It is also a development mindset that we adopted when we first started the implementation effort for OpenCL.
The project evolved beyond a single API and NEO no longer implies a specific API. When talking about a specific API, we will mention it by name (e.g. Level Zero, OpenCL).

- Once a week, we run extended validation cycle on a selected driver.
- When the extended validation cycle tests pass, the corresponding commit on github is tagged using the format yy.ww.bbbb (yy - year, ww - work week, bbbb - incremental build number).
- Typically for weekly tags we will post a binary release (e.g. deb).
- Quality level of the driver (per platform) will be provided in the Release Notes.
To allow NEO access to GPU device make sure user has permissions to files /dev/dri/renderD*.
Via system package manager
NEO is available for installation on a variety of Linux distributions and can be installed via the distro's package manager.
For example on Ubuntu* 20.04:
apt-get install intel-opencl-icd
Procedures for other distributions.
.deb packages for Ubuntu are provided along with installation instructions and Release Notes on the release page
Directly linking to the runtime library is not supported:
- Level Zero applications should link with Level Zero loader
- OpenCL applications should link with ICD loader library (ocl-icd)
- GmmLib - https://github.com/intel/gmmlib
- Intel Graphics Compiler - https://github.com/intel/intel-graphics-compiler
In addition, to enable performance counters support, the following packages are needed:
- Intel Metrics Discovery - https://github.com/intel/metrics-discovery
- Intel Metrics Library for MDAPI - https://github.com/intel/metrics-library
How to provide feedback
