Does the on-board video card of motherboard Gigabyte 890GPA-UD3H 890GX support OpenCL?

 

Hi, all:

I got the information from here http://forums.amd.com/devforum/messageview.cfm?catid=390&threadid=149109&highlight_key=y that my current video card doesn't support OpenCL. I would like to buy a new desktop, but with limited budget, I'd love to use the on-board video card on the following motherboard at the current stage:

 

Gigabyte 890GPA-UD3H 890GX AM3 ATX DDR3 2PCI-E 2PCI SATA3 USB3.0 HDMI GBLAN CrossFireX Motherboard http://ncix.com/products/?sku=51021&vpn=GA-890GPA-UD3H&manufacture=Gigabyte .

Does this integrated ATI video card support OpenCL?

 

Cheers

JIA

AFAIK no IGPU in chipset is based on anything newer than RV6xx. but IMHO new APU is supprting OpenCL.

so short answer is no.

What GPU does this mother board have. It shoould be a 5xxx for opencl 1.1 support.

I think you can have a motherboard with sufficient power supply and adequate number of PCIe card slots. You can purchase a dedicated GPU of your choice then.

Hi,

The motherboard can be found at http://gigabyte.com/products/product-page.aspx?pid=3756#ov . I cited the something related to the on-board integrated video card down here:

 

ATI Hybrid Graphics Technology support 

ATI Hybrid Graphics is a technology umbrella brand encompassing several technologies, such as ATI Hybrid CrossFireX™, ATI SurroundView™, ATI PowerPlay™, etc. that allow both an AMD integrated graphics processor and a discrete graphics processor to work co-operatively on an AMD based system to provide enhanced gaming performance, productivity and platform efficiency to the mainstream PC.

* Please use ATI Hybrid CrossFireX certified DX11 VGA card (i.e., ATI Radeon HD 5450, etc.), detail information please refer to AMD website.
ATI CrossFireX™ support 

With support for latest ATI CrossFireX™ technology, GIGABYTE pushes the envelope once again by delivering highly optimized performance and flexibility demanded for power users and extreme gaming enthusiasts. Designed to provide unmatched multi-GPU support with dual PCI-E connectivity, the GA-890GPA-UD3H allows users to take advantage of the ultra smooth 3D rendering, blazing-fast frame rates and enhanced visual quality possible.


I may buy a better independent video card later, but definitely not now, a bit over my budget indeed. However, I really expect this board-integrated video card at least support "AMD Accelerated Parallel Processing (APP) SDK".    http://developer.amd.com/gpu/AMDAPPSDK/Pages/default.aspx .

My current laptop is with "ATI Mobility Radeon X1600" video card, which seems not able to support OpenCL 1.1 ??  Well, anyway, being lack of the experience on GPU+OpenCL, I just don't want to make a wrong decision from the very scratch. 


Thank you all for your every nice and prompt reply. I just need some more info to make a decision what components I need to buy, with a reasonable price under my budget.

Thanks.
Cheers
JIA

Hi

I found this on the specification page:

"Onboard Graphics: Integrated in the North Bridge"

So it should most probably be a fusion device which would support OpenCL.

But please confirm this from Gigabyte and also check whether the integrated GPU is sufficient for your opencl requirements.
