    Emulator?

    ShaChris23

      Does AMD Brook+ SDK offer an emulator support? (i.e. programmer can start programming without having to buy hardware)

      Thanks,

      S.

          Hi, I'm just a user like you, but I think I can help you:
          Yes, you can use Brook+ without buying the hardware, however it will perform much slower.
          Brook+ can use two computation backends, one for GPU and another for CPU, you can switch
          to software mode just setting the environment variable BRT_RUNTIME = CPU

          As a warning there are a few cases where the results may differ because Brook+ is
          still under development, however they will be eventually fixed.
