    Uninstall Intel SDK for OpenCL - CPU Only Runtime Package


    I just spotted the program Intel SDK for OpenCL - CPU Only Runtime Package was installed on my desktop PC in December on the same date as the program Intel Management Engine Components. I have no idea what Intel SDK for OpenCL does. Can I safely uninstall it? See below all Intel programs currently installed.

    Intel suggests it is a development environment so if you don't write Open CL programs you probably don't need it.

    I'd make a backup and then uninstall it (just in case it breaks anything to do so). I always uninstall/disable Intel stuff though so could be a bit biased.

    I would leave the OpenCL SDK there...some apps and games can use it for improved calculation performance. The speed boost can be 10-200x depending on your hardware and calculation method used for a particular app.

    Simple Matrix calculations using OpenCL is 40x faster on my Intel i5-2410M/HD3000 Graphics GPU VS normal CPU methods.

    Thanks - something else I have might have installed it. Do you know what common programs / games use OpenCL SDK?

    I am sorry, I don't know/remember which programs take advantage of this. I only know for sure which few does NOT use anything related to CUDA/OpenCL or any other tech related to GPUs. It could be some bench marking application that has installed it for you.
