    Great release. Things keep getting better and better for AMD open source efforts.

    Still saddened that Tonga is not supported though. Or that GFX8 hardware needs atomics, while GFX7 and GHX9 do not... I hope this changes in the future. As a Piledriver + Tonga owner, i am a little unlucky here... LOL.

      Around me, I see people using Cuda or OpenCL. No ROCm/HSA.

      It is Capable to use openCL (and indirectly CUDA )

      But it is big step

      A ROCm 1.x.y supports only openCL 1.2

      On November 15, 2011, the Khronos Group announced the OpenCL 1.2 specification

      and ROCm 2.x.y support openCL2.0

      On November 18, 2013, the Khronos Group announced the ratification and public release of the finalized OpenCL 2.0 specification

      But openCL2.0 and later supports fast data transfer as HSA do with anticipated performance rise as of

          This is great. Makes AMD 1 major leap closer toward obsoleting the closed-source drivers.

            Until it gets built into distributions like Debian it doesn't exist. The entire stack guts Clang/LLVM on Debian primer and I can't imagine it doesn't do the same for Ubuntu.

              It would be good news if they actually supported older hardware as well - I mean, the Radeon HD 6290 sitting in one of my old computers would like OpenCL support, as would my R9 390 that's also capable of OpenCL 2.0 - but isn't supported by ROCm.

                Stop complaining and buy Navi.

                  Hey Michael, do you have any plans to benchmark TensorFlow with it? I don't know enough about it to contribute some tests (though I heard there was a container for ROCm + TensorFlow somewhere), but I know some people that would be interested in the results

                    Still no support for Raven Ridge. Currently using OpenCL from Radeon Software 18.50 on Fedora 29.
