Top community discussions about OpenCL Benchmark

OpenCL Benchmark, for Snow Leopard only
  • NVIDIA: 8xxx(M), 9xxx(M), GT1xx, GT2xx, GTX2xx
  • ATI: 4850, 4870 - maybe 10.6.2 update needed to run withput failures OPENCL - background information :
    • OpenCL is an API for universal GPU(CPU) computing , Mac OS X 10.6 supports that
    • Main difference to CUDA / ATI STEAM is: both APIs ate vendor specific. A CUDA (NV) app like badaboom(h264 on GPU) can't work on an ATI gpu and vice versa
    • OpenCL is universal means:
    • Xcode compiles an code which includes the source (C like) for the gpu That source is , different to CUDA/ATI STEAM, compiled later by OpenCL at runtime ! So
  • What's New in OpenCL Benchmark

    Version V2.0:
    • NEW: added 3 OpenCl benches/demos from Nvidia (may run on ATI latzer with 10.6.2)
    • 1. Teapot - very much difference between CPU and GPU
    • 2. Memory Bandwithtest : shows CPU<>GPU bottleneck for memory transfers over PCIe
    • 3. Volume Renderer

    Requirements for OpenCL Benchmark

    • Mac OS X 10.6 only
    • Intel CPUs : Core2Duo and Xeon Series, not Core Duo
    • OpenCL GPUs : Mac 2008+ with NVIDIA GPUs (Macbook /MBP/iMac GT120/MacPro)... Macs 2008+ with ATI GPUs - Mac OS X 10.6.2+ recommended (soon available, ATI works hard on OpenCL fixes)
