Is it possible, and if so, how do I install OpenCL drivers for a Lenovo G570's default graphics card? Edit: Lenovo's website says my graphics are Intel® HD Graphics (integrated).

I haven't found anything so far. I just want to know if this is possible. – whiskers75 Mar 17 '13 at 13:19

I think that you have to download OpenCL for Intel, but not for the HD Graphics, as (my guess), it is not a GPU. So , if you want to use OpenCL, you really need to install OpenCl to use with the CPU , that is , Intel. Take a look here

p.s My Lenovo has NVidia, then, I had installed NVidia driver and it comes with OpenCL ..

I hope it helps you.
