Is there OpenCL support for 18.04 on AMD? There is an AMDGPU-PRO preview but when I tired it nothing happened. None of my OpenCL aware apps detected anything.
UPDATE: I got the silly thing to install finally. The AMD instructions failed to mention using
sudo (doh!). Once that was accomplished
clinfo returned something other than Number of Platforms = 0.
However, only darktable recognized that OpenCL was available but OBS does not. After some research I discovered that OBS’s “hardware acceleration” is just looking for
nvenc to kick in Nvidia based hardware encoding. Rawtherapee (my preferred raw converter) is CPU bound at the moment with no plans for GPU enhancement that I know of so I am looking at upgrading to Threadripper or Threadripper 2 to keep performance up on that. The other apps will benefit as well so that is that.
Still looking for comments regarding this.
