Configurations for Intel® Processor Graphics (GPU) with OpenVINO™

In case if you are intended to use OpenVINO GPU plugin and offload network inference to Intel® graphics processor, the Intel Graphics Driver should be properly configured on your system.

If it is already installed, and you want to keep it, you can skip the installation steps.


To install the latest available Intel® Graphics Compute Runtime for OpenCL™ for your OS, see the Install Guides.


If you use RedHat 8 OS please install OpenCL library as prerequisite via following command line:

sh rpm -ivh ` <>`__


For instructions specific to discrete graphics platforms, refer to the dgpu guide (Intel® Arc™ A-Series Graphics, Intel® Data Center GPU Flex Series, Intel® Data Center GPU MAX Series, Intel® processor graphics Gen12, and Intel® Iris Xe MAX codename DG1).

You may consider installing one of the earlier versions of the driver, based on your particular setup needs.

It is recommended that you refer to the Intel® Graphics Compute Runtime Github page for instructions and recommendations on GPU driver installation specific to particular releases, including the list of supported hardware platforms.
