Pandaboard ES, PowerVR SGX540, Linaro & OpenCL support



I would like to know whether the PowerVR SGX540 supports OpenCL. If so, next question is whether OpenCL-supported drivers are provided for Linaro distro.

I currently own a Pandaboard ES with Linaro, and I would like to know whether I can rely on OpenCL.




Hi Randelli,

The PowerVR SGX 540 does support OpenCL unfortunately, we cannot provide drivers for our customers’ platforms. It is our customers’ responsibility to release drivers for their own platforms and to determine when the drivers on a given platform will be updated. You should contact Texas Instruments to see if they can provide suitable driver binaries for OpenCL on Linaro.
