    Wx7100 drivers for OpenCL 2.0


      I have a wx7100 GPU and want to upgrade it to OpenCL 2.0. I'm running Ubuntu 18.04, I've installed the AMD drivers but the card still shows up as "OpenCL 1.1 Mesa 18.0.5"?  Is this ok?

          Hi johanmon


          I,m a user like you and I try to learn every day, your question and my answer could be useful for future readers, sorry if this isn't useful for you.


          According the clinfo output your GPU model is FirePro W7100, not WX7100 (Radeon Pro)




          Which driver have you installed?    18.Q4 or 18.Q3?


          According the AMD Drivers & Support webpage for FirePro W7100 18.Q4 driver isn't recommended for Ubuntu 18.04.1 totally upgraded



          this means that you need the 18.Q3 driver


          When you are in Drivers & Support webpage for W7100 and select Linux x86_64 can see a link called Previous Drivers


          AMD_Pro driver_Linux_x86_64_previous_mod.png


          and then you look for Linux x86_64 again and click on Releases Notes




          and you'll see the APIs supported by this driver




          OpenCL 2.0 is not supported on Ubuntu 18.04.0/1 by the drivers 18.Q3 and 18.Q4




          All the best
