    At least we hope so

    AMD (2018): Fck everybody who bought APUs. We don't support them in ROCm anymore.
    A bad corporate joke is still a joke, but you're right

    C'mon AMD, you can play it a lot less dirty these days with all the Chinese money...

    Oh, thanks for catching that. I haven't paid much attention to their laptop chips.

    Or he means Ryzen 7 2700U.

    Q: I am looking for the patches to enable ROCm on APUs. Can you share them?

    A: Unfortunately not. Bruhnspace cannot share the patches.

    I feel like I'm the only one who clicks the links in the articles around here.
    I did follow the link, I found all their binaries, I really didn't think they wouldn't be sharing their code though

    I was kinda hoping it was going to be a simple switch they flicked to allow it, I was going to see if the same would work for my Tonga card which doesn't seem to be supported either

    Yes they are.


    p.s. Why did they disable it in the first place? APUs were touted back in the day for their HSA features which were much superior to OpenCL alone. Now they remove/disable the support? I didn't hear of this previously. Was it temporary? Was it not working well?

    Well, it depends,
    if AMD released the code, and in the mix were GPL code, AMD has to release not only a part, but all of it, if not is License Infringement..
    If AMd has patches that never went in the mix with GPL, then AMD can do with them whatever they wan to..

    But they will be useless, because when AMd patch GPL code with them, will be forced to release them anyway..
    So the patch's are useless, because they cannot be used, unless in a proprietary piece of code..
