    Double Precision on Radeon HD5850

    reggyj

      Hi, there. I need help getting double precision working in my openCL application on the GPU.

       

       

      Double precision works fine on the CPU, but when I try to run it on the GPU it fails.

       

      My Graphics Cards is  ATI Radeon HD5850 which is as far as I can tell, should work http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Comparison_of_AMD_graphics_processing_units#Evergreen_.28HD_5xxx.29_series

       

      It tells me it can't enable cl_khr_fp64 or cl_amd_fp64, but since my graphics card should be able to run 64bit, I'm at loss for why.

       

      I'm using the 13_1 drivers for my graphics card, and I have version 2.8 of the SDK.

       

       

      Specs:

      Windows 7 64 bit

      ATI Radeon HD5850

      Visual Studio 2010 Professional

      13_1 mobility Graphics drivers.

      AMD APP SDK 2.8

       

       

      Thanks in advance, any help is appreciated.
