    1. Also, the 2.0 spec is lacking a very important feature we're demanding for ages... The existence of a flag to disable the GPU driver's watchdog.

    Re: Timeouts for GPU kernels

    We need a flag initializing the OpenCL context to indicate we want explicitly disable the watchdog without having to touch the Windows's registry / affecting the GPU drawing APIs.

    SPIR kernel precompilation tool

    Now that the SPIR spec has been aproved I'm curious about the compiler tool...

    Is Khronos making the command-line "clc.exe" compiler? Or the IHVs?
    When will be available?

    I personally would...
  8. Array of images as kernel parameter

    I need to access an image array as kernel's parameter. Also, I need that the images could have different sizes too.

    Example:



    __kernel void MyKernel ( __read_only image2d_t img[1024] )
    {

  9. Re: Needed: information about kernel parameters

    Aka "kernel args reflection".
    Yep, we need this.

    Re: MPI like support

    If you want to use OpenCL remotely just use... MPI or sockets.
    It's not good to mix a network API with a GPGPU one.

    You can use MOSIX VCL:

    Re: Open Intermediate Language

    Once of the things the IHV learned is that DX-IL is not good. That's why they decided by consensum not to use a IL for OpenGL by very good reasons.

    MSAA images

    Pls, add image fetch like DX11/OpenGL's MSAA textures. Something like this:

    image.Load ( x, y, sample, [mipmap] );

    Re: Open Intermediate Language

    An intermediate language won't solve anything: it does not really protect the IP and it does neither optimize the loading/executing speed ( the IL program needs to be again recompiled and optimized...

    I got a problem. Imagine my app uses OpenCL but it requires to be compatible with old OSs and computers. The user might use an old driver without OpenCL suport.

  16. Re: Mipmap with Trilinear interpolation

    I agree. Most of the modern GPUs support this. I don't see why the initial CL spec was so basic dealing with images. We need mipmapping, yep.

    It's a thread talking about encrypting OpenCL kernel's source.
