Configurations for Intel® Gaussian & Neural Accelerator (GNA) with Intel® Distribution of OpenVINO™ toolkit¶
This page introduces additional configurations for Intel® Gaussian & Neural Accelerator (GNA) with Intel® Distribution of OpenVINO™ toolkit on Linux and Windows.
On platforms where Intel® GNA is not enabled in the BIOS, the driver cannot be installed, so the GNA plugin uses the software emulation mode only.
Drivers and Dependencies¶
Intel® GNA hardware requires a driver to be installed on the system.
Ensure that make, gcc, and Linux kernel headers are installed.
Run the sample_install.sh script provided in the installation package:
You can also build and install the driver manually by using the following commands:
prompt$ cd src/ prompt$ make prompt$ sudo insmod intel_gna.ko
To unload the driver:
prompt$ sudo rmmod intel_gna
Intel® GNA driver for Windows is available through Windows Update.
