can anybody help me? I’m trying to compile and run some OpenCL codes in Visual Studio.
I have not been successful so far. Worse, my video card burned.
Current specifications of my PC (without offboard video card):
Windows 8.1 Pro 64-bit
Intel Core 2 Quad CPU Q6600 @ 2.4GHz, 4.0GB RAM, Intel G33 / G31 Express Chipset Family
With these specifications I can program in OpenCL in Visual Studio?
What do I need to do? I’m totally lost.
If it is not possible in Visual Studio, is there any way I can get OpenCL on my machine?
Thanks in advance for your help and attention.
You can install AMD APP SDK, its CPU driver is pretty much vendor agnostic. And it comes with ton of examples.
Hi Salabar, so this software works for both AMD and Intel CPUs? Did I get that right?
Yes. They use basically stock LLVM code generator as far as I can tell.
I’m sorry for my ignorance, but how do I write opencl programs in Visual Studio using AMD APP SDK?
When I choose a new project, in the Visual C++ list, the OpenCL option does not appear.
Go to Start, type AMD APP SDK and find a folder with samples. Then you’d have to copy project settings from one of the projects or simply hack hello world sample to your liking.
