Phoronix: AMD Made OpenCL A Bit Faster This Year On Linux
To be published on Thursday and Friday of this week is the annual "year in review" articles for the AMD Catalyst and NVIDIA Linux graphics drivers. While those articles are looking at the OpenGL performance for all driver releases made in the past year, some OpenCL benchmarks were also conducted...
OpenCl -> Blender -> Cycles
I just registered to ask the following (nice captcha btw):
Can anyone with good insight/working on the closed/open source driver give an estimation when/if the OpenCl driver will support the Cycles Blender Renderer in OpenCl mode?
I'd be happy to hear a rough estimate like in
* maybe a few months
* 1/2 - 1 year
* more than 1 year / never.
I heard the blender devs say that the problem is in the driver, I d love to hear a driver dev's opinion on the theme.
And in general, if you are working on the drivers, many thanks for your efforts! The improvents you made are awesome!
