What AMD Hardware Supports Accelerated Performace in Libre Office Calc?

Jump to solution

I'm interested in buying a laptop running a linux OS (likely Ubuntu or Mint) and using fairly processor-intensive spreadsheets in Libre Office Calc.  I understand that AMD worked closely with Libre Office to develop accelerated performance with GPU-CPU cooperation.  What AMD products can use this, and how does AMD's performance compare to competitors in Libre Office Calc?  What laptops use these AMD products?  Will these products also be linux compatible?  Thank you.

According to that LibreOffice is OpenCL accelerated, so any AMD card will work. As for a Linux laptop suggestion, I'd recommend a Linux specialty forum, such as Linux Hardware Reviews, Open-Source Benchmarks & Linux Performance - Phoronix
