CPU / GPU in SDK v2.0-beta4 - Seems Backwards to me.

Runs on GPU. Doesn't run on CPU.

The documentation for the newest beta seems to indicate that the SDK will run on CPUs but "doesn't use GPU accelleration" yet.

However, I am testing on 2 machines that have NVIDIA cards and Intel CPUs, and the samples run fine with DEVICE_TYPE_GPU, which impresses me, but with DEVICE_TYPE_CPU the call to clCreateContextFromType()  fails with CL_DEVICE_NOT_FOUND.

On one machine I went ahead and installed the driver package (Catalyst), but that made no difference.

The machines are Vista64 and the builds are 64 bit.

What is it that I don't get? 
Thanks in advance!
