Intel(R) Graphics Compute Runtime for oneAPI Level Zero and OpenCL(TM) Driver

Introduction

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).

Release cadence

  • 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.

Installation Options

To allow NEO access to GPU device make sure user has permissions to files /dev/dri/renderD*.
