Work Is Back Underway On Clover: Mesa's OpenCL
Phoronix: Work Is Back Underway On Clover: Mesa's OpenCL
Some two years ago there was a branch of Mesa created by Zack Rusin named "Clover" with intentions of providing OpenCL over Mesa. While it looked hopeful at first, this code to support OpenCL over Mesa was never finished and after a while it didn't receive any further work. It's been months since there's been much activity in this area of GPGPU support for Mesa/Gallium3D, but recently Zack has renewed his interest in getting Mesa Clover working...
cool. academic people will appreciate that when it will be usable. i myself know quite a few university guys who long for it but stuck with nvidia blobs.
Would working OpenCL provide a new angle in debugging performance (especially shader) in Gallium3d?
