    AMD platform choice with regards to DoublePrecision computing.

    icosahedron

      Hello,

      I nearly bought a laptop with A8-3500M + Radeon 6650M, but with a stroke of luck i was allowed to plug my drive into it for test and i was surprised to find that there was no double precision available on either APU or GPU chip. I searched a little and found that APU are not to be fitted with double precision circuits.

       

      The next choice is A10-4600M + Radeon 7970M, but i couldn't find anything specific about Radeon 7970M int terms of SP/DP math. Does anyone know, or even better verified by hand that this platform will allow me DP computings ?
