An ATI app "should" do very well here with it's mostly superior dp support. There's been an AMD GPU app mentioned since way back when GPU support was first announced. So can you give us some details on how close to release you are?
Or more to the point is AMD GPU support still being worked on at all?

Thanks for your time.

Yes surely a definitive answer for AMD GPU crunchers isn't asking to much?

Well, it looks like there is no progress for AMD GPU. As I wrote I can't program for AMD GPU and everyone offering programming the app haven't write me on any progress since that so I suppose that no one is currently working on it.

That's bad news but thanks anyway Kyong :(


Anyone else have the required skills???

Would love to have ATI/AMD version so that I can stretch the legs of my new 480.

Cheers

Mark

Hi all,
I'm not a developer but maybe there is a tool to convert cuda application on OpenCL: HIP : C++ Heterogeneous-Compute Interface for Portability

It's an AMD tool and claims that:


To bring applications written for CUDA onto AMD platforms, AMD announces the new HIP tool. AMD testing shows that in many cases 90 percent or more of CUDA code can be automatically converted into C++ by HIP with the final 10 percent converted manually in the widely popular C++ language. This greatly expands the installed hardware base available to run what were formerly exclusively CUDA-based applications. At SC15, AMD is demonstrating the potential for HIP, running the CUDA-generated Rodinia benchmark suite on AMD GPUs.


On many situations, AMD/ATi gpu has better DP performance than nVidia, then an OpenCL version can be interesting.

Best wishes.

Just yesterday Amd released version 1.0 of HIP, with a lot of new features and bugfix.

As a fan of the Asteroids@home project, I do find it unusual that you still can't crunch this project with an ATI GPU.
I'm not a coder, so I bow to greater knowledge, but I do consider it unlikely that there's no software to solve the problem.
Maybe there isn't a problem, maybe the community want to continue as is.

Another tool for translate CUDA to OpenCL: CU2CL

The CU2CL translator project seeks to deliver platform portability of CUDA codes via robust automated translation to OpenCL.


Greetings.
