Running a neural network on 410C Linux


#1

Hello!

I’ve seen a lot of topics about that OpenCL is not supported for Linux (freedreno driver). But I want to ask a general question:

Is there a chance to run any neural network using any framework (tensorflow lite, caffe, MACE …) on GPU for linux-based 410c?

For me, the answer is “no” after a few hours research.
Could you share your experience or opinion?

There are not really any plans to bring any kind of GPU compute to Freedreno for the a3xx GPU found in the 410.

All the GPU compute work in Freedreno targets more recent a4xx GPUs (and IIRC is currently implements compute shaders rather than OpenCL so would be hard to exploit from the neural frameworks even on newer dragonboards).
