Hi all,

I am kind of curious about the 24 bit integer and 24 bit integer operations. On the OpenCL spec doc talk about 24 bit integer but I don't see any datatype keyword for it. Can someone delight me about this stuff?

Additionally, what happens to the CHAR(8bit) and SHORT(16bit) operations? Are they natively supported or they will be executed as a 32 bit operations? or as 24 bit operations?

Thank you,
