latest release of Mesa
also has full IVB support and had for sometime now.

I have been waiting to get hold of one, as they are only a few hundred
dollars, to find out exactly how far they can be pushed. They are now on
the market for the xmas season. They look like they will be very useful
for low energy footprint, high performance multimedia clusters. Also for
networked display installations. Solar powered netjack clusters...

The AMD Fusion chips are GPU on die and they have recently released a
large chunk of opencl tools. I haven't had time over the past few months
to look into exactly how much access is now available.
