        AMD announced that official support for Polaris was dropped a few months ago already.
        Still, it does not mean that GPUs do not work at all with ROCm anymore, far from it... you still have support for Terascale cards in the LLVM backend.

              As always two steps backwards for each step forward
              ## VGA ##
              AMD: X1950XTX, HD3870, HD5870
              Intel: GMA45, HD3000 (Core i5 2500K)

                I could do OpenCL only with upstream kernel on Ubuntu 22.04 with sudo apt install rocm-opencl

                  ROCm on consumer GPUs beyond GFX9 (Vega) seems to be a WIP, that is not a great signal to consumers. I know they are prioritizing their server parts and GFX9 is the technical base there, but still. Consumer care about the support of their GPUs on day one (or when they can get their hands on one of these nowadays) - and not two years after release.

                    Does is mean OpenCL will work on Debian with Radeon 6800XT cards, or that's still in dreams territory?
