    Phoronix: CLVK Takes Shape For OpenCL On Vulkan, But Performance Has A Long Ways To Go

    In addition to Zink taking shape for OpenGL over Vulkan, the separate and independent effort of CLVK continues marching along for OpenCL over Vulkan. I was experimenting with CLVK today and did some initial benchmarks...

    I would be more interested in seeing a comparison to the open source OpenCL drivers because that is where we actually have a demand for improvements. If CLVK could replace another open source solution with a decent performance than it really will be a viable option.

    Really nice to see CLVK working already :-)

          Hello, I'm the clvk author. Nice to see it scrutinised . So far the focus has been on features and correctness and I'm sure there are many performance issues, some of them probably really low-hanging fruits. I've just pushed a change that should make a massive difference to performance with recent NVidia drivers. I would love to see the article updated with the new results .

          Thank you!

            Hi! Good to know, thanks. Will try to find time to do new tests in a few days. Feel free to reach out if ever some interesting perf improvements or features to cover.

              Thanks. You should get a nice surprise.

              Feel free to reach out if ever some interesting perf improvements or features to cover.
              Will do. I'm currently working on image support. I'll give you a shout once it's available.
