APU, BPU, CPU,DPU ... support Feature wanted in AMD APP

Hi,

We already have Python libraries to support devices for all alpha

i.e APU, BPU, CPU, DPU ....

and would welcome to AMDs APP support to all those devices

APU, BPU, CPU,DPU ... support Feature wanted in AMD APP

So, AMD APP support for GPUs on Linux without a running X server has been brought up in this thread multiple times.  Could we get an update from AMD on whether or not this is being worked on, or even considered by the driver team?

We do a lot of research on heterogeneous computing, especially GPU acceleration of scientific code.  So far, we have primarily used NVidia/Intel hardware, but would like to also explore AMD hardware, especially the Fusion architectures and high-end Radeon cards.  However, our experience so far with AMD hardware has been less than ideal since we need to majorly modify the software installations on our compute machines to accomodate a full X server installation along with appropriate permissions and handling of the DISPLAY environment variable depending on the type of application we are running.

Simply put, requiring a running X server on headless compute nodes not only needlessly complicates the software installations, but requires us to carefully balance GPU usage against system RAM usage from the X server.

I would like to be able to use OpenCL via Remotedesktop on Windows ... I dislike that shitty VNC stuff :-/. And it would be nice to group multiple GPUs into one OpenCL device!

Great news, thanks for the info 😉 I uninstalled TightVNC and OpenCL works via RDP!

I'd like to have an optimized version of your FFT algorithm.

Especially for complex 32K FFTs, single precision. 1D. Batches of 12.

My card: 6970

An OpenCL  Kernel Arguments  Reflection API,

 We need an API call to get back the  Kernel arguments metadata

Position, Name, Type, Address space prefix, ...

Larger image2D  max height, width. AMD APP SDK 2.5 supports 8K  max

for a Image2D height or width.  

We have some very wide but small in height (1px)  images.

It would be greate to increase this  max limit to  32K or 65K.

3dmashup,

Could you give us some ideas of importance and usage of this?

Is it not possible for you to use buffers instead of images?
