    If you just want opencl support, only installing the "rocm-opencl" debian package works very well on unsupported Ubuntu/Debian versions IMHO. Very few dependencies.

        It's only for MIOpen or for whole rocm stack?

          Well, MIOpen uses the ROCm stack, but I guess the operative question is whether functionality not required by MIOpen is still broken, for RDNA?

            Yet another ROCm release without support for OpenCL on Polaris - unforgiveable.

              ROCm only officially supports a tiny number of workstation and server cards, and I don't see that changing anytime soon. However, that doesn't mean it won't run on other cards/ GPUs. So just ignore the official support matrix and give it a shot. Maybe it works, maybe it doesn't. "Unsupported" really just means AMD won't help you if you run into issues. You can still submit bug reports, but you'll just get a canned "your card isn't supported at this time" response.

                Our main focus for OpenCL on Polaris uses the Orca back end. If you install the packaged drivers using --usecase=opencl and --opencl=legacy that should add Orca-based OpenCL on top of your existing driver stack.

                  boxerab Maybe we will see in a not so far future better OpenCL support for AMD GPUs in clover aka MESA Gallium Compute down to the TeraScale 2 architecture.

                    A few questions then:
                    1. will there be polaris support
                    2. how will performance compare to ROCm or Orca
                    3. what is ETA ?
