    OpenCL: Supported hardware

    The following list is an overview of currently supported hardware you can run OpenCL on.

    Graphic cards
    ATi/AMD
    • Radeon HD 4xxx series
    • Radeon HD 5xxx series
    • Radeon HD 6xxx series
    • Radeon HD 7xxx series


    NVIDIA
    • GeForce 8xxx series (tested on: 8800GT)
    • GeForce 9xxx series (tested on: 9500GT)
    • GeForce GTn 1xx/2xx/3xx/4xx/5xx/6xx series (tested on: GT120, GTX260, GTX 275)

    Tested: GeForce 8800GT, GeForce 9500GT

    S3
    • Chrome 5400E


    Make sure you use OpenCL enabled drivers.

    Processors
    Intel
    • Core 2 Duo
    • Core i3, i5, i7
    • ... and newer


    You need to download Intel SDK for OpenCL applications, install it and reboot Windows:

    (In the combobox at the top right corner pick Intel SDK for OpenCL 2012 (Windows 32 bit), even if you have 64 bit Windows, because ThinBASIC is 32bit app)

    AMD
    • Something as old as Sempron is okay
    • ... and newer


    You need to download AMD Accelerated Parallel Processing (APP) SDK, install it and reboot Windows:

    Re: OpenCL: Supported hardware

    I had oportunity to test ATi HD 4xxx series card today, and it seems the only example it is able to run from those I posted and run ok on GeForces, is that about with device info. That is quite bad.

    I was not allowed to install latest drivers and ATi SDK there, so this is situation for SDK 2.0.
    I hope it will be possible to test in next weeks.

    If anybody has friends with ATi Radeon HD 4xxx/5xxx and could try to run the OpenCL samples from here, I would appreciate it a lot.

    Exactly the same situation here.

    Statistics on steam show 30% of gamers having ATis, where are they?

    Re: OpenCL: Supported hardware

    I checked again the Steam survey (of course representative just for gamer comunity of this service).
    I filtered out just OpenCL enabled GPUs and found this usage percentage:
    • ATi 15%
    • NVIDIA 46%
