GNA compatibility with openSUSE


While focused on the openSUSE Innovator initiative as an openSUSE member and official Intel oneAPI innovator, I tested the Beast Canyon NUC 11 machine on openSUSE Leap 15.3 and Tumbleweed; With all the work, we made available in the SDB an article on how to use the GNA Technologie on the openSUSE platform.

Beast Canyon (still on pre-order) is the highest-performing Intel® NUC available today. Beast Canyon is the evolution of Intel’s modular gaming mini PC, a more compact gaming PC than most gamers could dream of building on their own. The equipment in some models has the Core i9-11900KB processor with the GNA feature: Gaussian & Neural Accelerator Library.

Intel® Gaussian & Neural Accelerator is a low-power neural coprocessor for continuous inference at the edge. For more information, visit :
