        I really hope the OpenCl 2.0 and/or new Catalyst 14.50 Linux testing driver fixes the issues with folding on AMD gpu's natively under Linux.

          Just installed this driver on Ubuntu 14.04. Kernel module compiles normally on linux 3.16 without external patches.

          Mouse cursor corruption problem when using multiple monitors - still here. Will they fix it at all? This bug annoys me for about a Year.

            I'm honestly surprised AMD hasn't pushed this out sooner. OpenCL is (or at least would have been) where AMD gains the most profits in linux, considering the appeal in servers. I guess opencl 1.x might've been good enough but I'm not really sure.

              Just a guess: open source HSA implementation probably has higher priory than closed source OpenCL 2.0 implementation.

                  I'm more curious about bug fixes. Any noted, and where do we get 14.50? or is it not available yet?
