Kabini APUs & HSA capabilities

Hello Colleagues,

I would like to start with experiments regarding HSA functionalities (like hUMA or hQ) and therefore I need appropriate hardware. I am already an owner of one Radeon 7970 but I am thinking about an acquisition of an AMD APU.

I know that Kaveri APUs should provide such functionalities but is a necessary hardware also included into Kabini APUs? I would really like to obtain an AMD Athlon 5350 because it is a great deal for a such price and power consumption is great. Information that can be found over the internet regarding this topic is non-uniform so I am quite confused.

So does the Kabini support HSA functionalities (will support in near future) or not?

Thank you for an explanation.

BR

Hi Kunin,

As I know, Kabini APUs support various HSA functionalities but not sure about hUMA or hQ. If you want more details related to this, there is an another forum called AMD Support & Games Forums where you can post your query under AMD Products-> AMD Accelerated Processor Units (APU).

Regards,

Hi,

Kabini doesn't and won't support HSA.

You will have to buy Kaveri if you would like to use HSA.
