    This is the first release with any changelog on GitHub, and also the first pointrelease with any changelog. And the changelog is very well written too!
    Good job people working on ROCm, a bit late, but this is a really welcome change for maintainers!

      Finally! Its looking like we have a second contender! I am 100% a Nvidia user for the last decade or so, but now there is at least an excuse to grab an AMD card and give it a run. Looking forward to the next GPU purchase, it should be quite a bit more interesting then the last one. If your an ML practitioner then the only cards up until now have been Nvidia... and the 3000 series dominated. Hopefully the next round will at least have some diversity and competition to choose from!

        btw phoronix, it seems ROCm stopped being officially used as an acronym

          Looks like my recent ranting has finally changed their minds...

            Is Polaris OpenCL still disabled ?

              This is exciting. I'm really hoping the latest pytorch-rocm will be able to run the StableDiffusion model.

                Too much Ubuntu obsessed! There are many other popular Linux distributions, please look at them.

                They also still have to make ROCm(tm) a lot better. This isn't enough, the list is still nearly endless.

                Please start with supporting more hardware even older generation and lots more consumer cards

                  Technically speaking, it wasn't an acronym. The Cm part. An acronym uses the first letters of a word and that's number 2 and last.

                  I suppose ROCm was the coolest sounding thing they could come up with for Radeon Open Ecosystem.

                  Or is it because of these lines:

                  Notice for Open-source and Closed-source ROCm Repositories in Future Releases


                  To make a distinction between open-source and closed-source components, all ROCm repositories will consist of sub-folders in future releases.

                  • All open-source components will be placed in the base-url/<rocm-ver>/main sub-folder

                  • All closed-source components will reside in the base-url/<rocm-ver>/ proprietary sub-folder
                  Based on their documentation, it isn't all Open so calling it Radeon Open eCosysteM is misleading.

                  bridgman Feel free to pass this one along to whomever it concerns:

                    I think they need some heavy shake up in personnel or their hardware support will stay poor forever. Look at this ticket https://github.com/RadeonOpenCompute/ROCm/issues/1400

                    Thanks @ROCmSupport for the quick replay. I'm still a bit confused because of what the documentation was describing as 'limited support' (I understand you will remove/clarify that part of the docs) but also because of this AMD layer content for yocto: meta-amd which has (old) support for ROCm for the V1000 platform (which integrates the Raven Ridge mobile GPU):

                    ## Machines

                    The supported AMD BSPs are:

                    * r1000
                    * v1000
                    * e3000

                    from: https://git.yoctoproject.org/cgit/cg...-bsp/README.md

                    ROCm recipes:
                    https://git.yoctoproject.org/cgit/cg...encl/opencl.bb
                    https://git.yoctoproject.org/cgit/cg...ocm/hsa/hsa.bb
                    https://git.yoctoproject.org/cgit/cg...a/libhsakmt.bb

                    Seems like the ROCm had support for the V1000 and then, you dropped it for some reason. Is this correct? Are there any future plans to support the embedded Ryzen V1000 platform?

                    Thanks

                    Hi @dagmcr
                    As per process, when new cards are added into support section, its not possible to support old cards in parallel.
                    I can not comment on future plans right now. Request you to follow our documentation.
                    Thank you.
                    They are explicitly refusing to provide ROCm / OpenCL support with the same duration of OpenGL / Vulkan to their GPUs. They are only willing to support the current generation HPC supercomputers that they are being paid for. Even Vega is too "old" for them in 2021. Their GPU Compute department don't even recognize that those "embedded" processors are advertised for "5 years" part availability, which means the v1000 mentioned in that ticket is probably still being sold by AMD today. They were removing support recklessly of a product that their company were still selling.
