after a long time waiting and the interim deployment of a experimental driver,
I’ve just installed the most recent, stable AMD pro driver for Ubuntu 16.04.
My setup is a headless workstation with a Radeon FirePro W9100 32GB which should be used for image processing (via opencl).
- Ubuntu 16.04
- Kernel 4.4.0-51-generic
and I’ve installed
The driver seemed to be installed correctly:
lshw -C display
description: VGA compatible controller
product: Hawaii XT GL [FirePro W9100]
vendor: Advanced Micro Devices, Inc. [AMD/ATI]
configuration: driver=amdgpu latency=0
lspci -nnk | grep -i vga -A3 | grep 'in use'
Kernel driver in use: amdgpu
However a quick test via pyopencl resulted in a benchmark which performed worse than before (with the experimental driver).
It seems like only 16 GB of RAM and only 14 compute units out of 44 were detected:
Device name: Hawaii
Device type: GPU
Device memory: 16192 MB
Device max clock speed: 555 MHz
Device compute units: 14
Running /opt/amdgpu-pro/bin/clinfo produced a rather confusing output (find attached), which leads to the assumption, that
something related to the driver might be broken.
Does anyone have a similar experience (or even better a solution) with the FirePro W9100 running Ubuntu 16.04?
