The short answer is that it will run, assuming your code does not use device specific features (e.g. Nvidia extensions). How the work items get mapped to cpu cores is implementation specific.

An OpenCL implementation might treat each work item as a separate thread and only launch two threads a time. Work items could be combined by using SSE instructions (vectorizing the code).

in CPU one core handle two thread or one thread at a time.
