Compatibility with AMD Vega 56?

Post by neilvan » 10.03.2020 00:36

I get OpenCL errors when trying to use my MSI AMD Vega 56 GPU. Is there any planned support for this card?

My system seems to crunch my stacks fairly quickly without it but I would like to be able to use the computing power on my Vega 56... :D

The performance results for this GPU can be checked in the benchmark results table: https://www.heliconsoft.com/helicon_foc ... e_view.php

Does the problem persist? Could you please let us know what the error you are getting is?

Hi Catherine,

Thanks for following this up, I am still having the same problems with I enable OpenCL.

Here is the error message I get when I enable and restart the application:

"Failed to initialize OpenCL acceleration. Hardware configuration might have changed or hardware not supported. Please check Preferences. Error text: CL_BUILD_PROGRAM_FAILURE"

I can tell you that my system is up-to-date with all drivers, software etc. My GPU driver is currently running v. 20.4.1.

Sorry for the incomplete initial answer. Vega 56 is supported on Mac, but not on Windows (due to technical differences in how the AMD graphics driver compiles and stores OpenCL program code). We currently have no plans to support Vega 56/64 on Windows with OpenCL, but we are working on migrating to Vulkan, which will support every single Vulkan-enabled card (including Vega).
