OpenCL support for Radeon 7970?

Jump to solution

Hi guys, newbie question:

I'm considering buying a 7970-based card for OpenCL development on Linux and Windows.  I've been warned that AMD hasn't provided proper OpenCL drivers for the 7970 yet.  Anyone know when they'll be available on Windows and/or Linux?

they are available for both windows and linux. on linux you get a unsupported hardware watermark in corner of your screen. IMHO that should disappear in next version of catalyst 12,1 which should be released shortly. at least on windows they should work. on linux they can be unstable in meantime as it is new product.
