    Phoronix: Radeon RX 6800 Series Has Excellent ROCm-Based OpenCL Performance On Linux

    While Radeon Open eCosystem (ROCm) support wasn't a focus for the initial Radeon RX 5000 "Navi" graphics cards by AMD engineers, that is fortunately changing for both the RX 5000/6000 series moving forward. With the Radeon RX 6800 series there is at-launch support available with working OpenCL provided by the "ROCr" (runtime) path in their packaged driver. Now that we have looked at the Radeon RX 6800 Linux gaming performance here are some initial OpenCL compute benchmarks between NVIDIA and AMD Radeon on Linux.

    Didn't Blender had a OpenCL mode? I know they had it on Windows.

      It's still busted for me at least on NVIDIA Linux so wasn't tested.

        Great to see AMD beating nvidia's proprietary ass. Birdie, eat that shit. Oh, and nvidia is broken with the latest kernel. What a pity..

          Looking forward to full RDNA support in ROCm.

          Looking forward to see how birdie is going to misrepresent this one.

            I understood that going forward, OpenCL runtime for AMD GPUs will be based on ROCr. Is this true also for Windows or Linux only, or in other words if ROCr will be the runtime on all platforms for OpenCL?

              Does this mean we can expect Pytorch and Tensorflow support for Rdna 2?

                Oh he will do what he always does, fly around carelessly pooing over our heads.

                Watch out!, here comes birdie... just to suffer.

                  Weird, seems like the Linux OpenCL performance is way better than it is on Windows. If CDNA is meant to be more focused on compute, makes me wonder how much further that would surge ahead.

                    Looks good, but the memory is very slow and in some specific tasks perform very badly.
                    If you have a mixed use case like gaming + compute, it's a waste of money.
                    They should've continued the Radeon VII production.
                    Too bad power consumption numbers were not provided.
