Glad to see the progreess, maybe the competion will eventually lead to better OpenGL support in OSX too.
Now where the heck is the OpenCL support for i7 on Linux ?!
Perhaps Intel could put a bit of effort into releasing (GPU) OpenCL support for their i7 Ivy Bridge line then? For the same chip there's a Windows driver, but not for Linux. But for Xeon it only works for Linux but not Windows. It has been promised for a year, still nothing.
Their efforts so far seem to have been shipped off to another team, who did something in parallel to the rest of the community, so likely a dead end.
As demonstrated here, surely they have the resources?
Get with the program guys!
