How to install AMD Video Drivers for Intel Core 2 Duo


My Laptop does not have any Graphic Card. It is a simple Intel(R) Core(TM)2 Duo CPU T6500 @ 2.10GHz with Ubuntu 15.10. I want to work with OpenCL 1.2. I Installed the Ubuntu version of OpenCL
Now if I run the 'clinfo' command in Terminal, it gives me:

Number of platforms : 1
and the rest of the info about the platform. Till this part, it's working fine.

But then I followed some simple codes to learn OpenCL

I try to run any example and it gives me the following error.


I followed the error and found out through this CL_DEVICE_NOT_AVAILABLE using Intel Core 2 Duo E8500 CPU that my CPU does not support OpenCL. In the comments section, they have discussed that alternatively AMD video drivers could be used to run OpenCL...

What is the exact procedure for downloading and installing AMD Video drivers for Intel(R) Core(TM)2 Duo CPU T6500 @ 2.10GHz with Ubuntu 15.10?? Is there any tutorial that I can follow? Do I have to install the Catalyst?

You cannot install AMD drivers on an Intel system.
