The videographer must have been a depressed Indians fan, looking for something to distract him/her/them from his/her/their crushed ambition.

This is good, that it is posted so quickly, since I imagine many of the usual live-stream viewers were probably otherwise occupied last evening! ;)

Hi there is also cuda emulator for opencl capable chips

but it only supports a lower cuda tool kit version.

Is that part of AMD's Boltzmann Initiative/GPUOpen(1), to convert/port CUDA based code to OpenCL with Other programming laungages supported also? An Emulator sounds slow, what about just porting directly from CUDA to OpenCL? Please provide a link to information about this emulator.

what do you guys think of this ddr 4 memory
https://www.amazon.com/AMD-Radeon-Memory-DDR4-R748G2400U2S/dp/B013WAJ528...

since amd is going hbm

also for the GeForce temp issue 90 deg of F or C isn't that hot as seen in the temp sensor.

thanks now can we mod a gpu so that you can put it into gpu enclosure so that the card could act as a external gpu.

I was looking at zotac erx480 that competes with intel nuc dunno if its a good solution for external gpu. any opinions?

thanks guys

Memory seems overpriced for 8GB of DDR4 2400. Look at G.Skill or Corsair.
