Can Radeon handle sparse matrices?

non-coalesced memory access

I'm intereted in multiplying a sparse matrix of size 2000x2000 with 5-10% non-zero elements by a dense matrix of size 2000x20 to 2000x100.

I've been told that since sparce matrices require non-coalesced memory access, Radeon won't be able handle them (efficiently?). Is this correct?
