Check error on stream after its declaration, you would know if double precision is supported on hardware.
thanks, I tried your method, and the error message is below.
Stream Allocation : Double precision not supported on underlying hardware
Stream Allocation : Failed to create buffer
I am kind of supprized that HD4650 does not support doubles. Can someone confirm on this? or I have to install the proper driver to use it?
Hi FangQ, the 4650 does not support DPFP since it does not have the hardware in the ASIC. We do not enable or disable DPFP on our products through the driver or other software.
You can take a look at this page:
for information on which products have DPFP support and which do not (look for the superscript 1).
thank you Michael. now I see it.
Other than double precision floats, are there any other significant limitations for using stream sdk on 4650 card comparing with the more full-featured ones, say 4870?
Not to my knowledge, other than fewer number of SIMDs and perhaps a slow engine/memory clock.
