  • Productive OpenCL 1.1 Programs?

    I was wondering if anybody knew of any linux-compatible programs based on openCL 1.1, that have a productive purpose such as [email protected] or [email protected] Most BOINC compatible things that fit this description are 32 bit only or don't seem to have an explicit goal.

    I have an old 7900GT just lying around doing nothing. It only has 256MB of VRAM, which isn't enough to do games but the core to the GPU is actually still decent even for today's standards Considering most of these things aren't memory intensive, I feel this would be a great way to put use to this old GPU. Unfortunately since it's not part of the 8000 series, it doesn't have CUDA support. But, I've heard it supports openCL 1.1.

    In my current rig I have 2 AMD HD5750s. I use the open source drivers in linux, which means no crossfire support. This prevents the 2nd GPU from ever being used, so I'm also interested in putting use to that GPU, too.
