    CPU image support

    bubu

      I like the CPU device, specially to debug ( lalalala printf extension! )

      The problem is that it does not support images, so I simply cannot debug GPU devices using the CPU "emulation".

       

      thx

          *bump*

          Will cpu image support be implemented some day?

              I'd like CPU image support too, but in the meantime you can create another version of your kernels replacing the images with float4, int4, uint4 or whatever and changing the way to retrieve the data accordingly for when you want to run on CPU.

              It should be quite simple...

                  It is simple but it is tiresome to maintain two "branches" of code that do the same. It would also be simple for the amd team to write appropriate wrappers for cpu image support!

                douglas,

                Thanks. I also hope image support for CPUs come in some future releases.

                Judy,
