Hi Alimon,

Congratulation for this release !

I am using a RB3 Kit and i am very excited to try OpenCL on Linux.
Maybe i am missing something cause haven’t found libOpenCL.so in the images.
Is it part of the 19.09 deliverables ?

Thank you and keep up the good work !

Hi Iugu,

There was a typo in the release announcement (OpenCL -> OpenGL) so currently we don’t support OpenCL in the Dragonboard845c, sorry for the confusion.

Anibal

Thank you Anibal for the clarification :slight_smile:

When will you support OpenCL in the Dragonboard845c?

at the moment, it is not planned. we would need to check what the status of OpenCL is on the freedreno driver/community. if you have time to investigate, i would be happy to get some information…
