I recently got a FirePro W8100, installed it in Linux, and installed amdgpu-pro 17.1 driver to get it working with OpenCL programs.
However, there are two surprises:
1. clinfo reports it is a OpenCL 1.2 device, not 2.0 device as advertised.
2. For some programs dealing with integers that I wrote, it runs slower than Radeon HD7970 (using fglrx driver 15.3) ...
Any suggestion to get a) OpenCL 2.0 and b) run at least on par with HD 7970?
