Microsoft OpenGL OpenCL compatability pack

Microsoft OpenGL OpenCL compatability pack

Back in March, we reported that OpenCL 1.2 and OpenGL 3.3 support is coming to all Windows and DirectX 12 enabled devices. Microsoft has now released a compatibility pack that allows you to run any OpenCL and OpenGL apps on a Windows 10 PC that doesn’t have OpenCL and OpenGL hardware drivers installed by default. If you have a DirectX 12 driver installed on your Windows 10 PC, supported apps will run with hardware acceleration for better performance.

For now, only certain apps can use this compatibility pack. Microsoft also mentioned that Windows Insiders can get an Insiders version of this package that allows more apps to use it.

You can download the OpenCL and OpenGL compatibility pack here from Microsoft Store.
