Hello everyone,

I started programming for AMD GPUs with OpenCL. Recently OpenCL 1.1 Mesa suffice all work, but when I want to printf something from kernel the problem occured.

By searching on google and this forum I realize that I have old version of OpenCL. I want to install driver that is capable using OpenCL 2.0, but I have Ubuntu 16.04 and for this version is not driver for OpenCL 2.0.

Will the AMD developers write the proprietary driver for Ubuntu 16.04? And is any alternativ for this driver for now?

And I know that here is other way: downgrade to Ubuntu 14.04 and there is all OpenCL support, but I dont want to downgrade my system


For the HW questions: I have nootebook with AMD Radeon RX 550 Graphics and on my desktop I have AMD Radeon R9 390 8GB Gaming from MSI.


PS: Why are all helps and questions about OpenCL almost from 2012? Is this language obsolete?


Thank you and all developers from AMD, you are doing great job
