Hello, I'm planning on buying a new gpu over the Christmas period and I am considering AMD options. I'm wondering how far away the release of this feature is? If it is months rather than weeks then I'll probably stick with Nvidia.

Hi,

any news about the beta? You spoke about "end of August / start of September" starting the beta.

Thank you

Hi,

why dont't you answer the questions in the forum?
For me this is a disrespectful behaviour towards the users.
But why? Are you to busy at the momemt?

Kindly regards

Hi Pixelvier,

you are right here and we apologize for this. Never trying to be disrespectful in any way.

Right now, we have "packed" OpenCL testing along with our beta period in next edition. Isolated testing of OpenCL port has half the importance, instead testing the OpenCL port along with any upcoming features is even more important.

All I can say at the moment is that we have been continuously updating our goals the past months for our next edition. And now we are sure, that it will be a huge update. OpenCL port will be *just* one of the features!

Best wishes

Yup! What we can usually say about Giannis silences is that they don't mean simple answers but bigger questions.

It's really exciting and annoying at the same time!

I am sorry about my "silence". What can I say? I am really excited (and completely carried away) when experimenting with an idea or implementing something new. :oops:

My hope for you all is that you beat Octane 3.0 to the market with OpenCL capabilities.

Octane has had a long and silent period after their announcement for 3.0, but no release yet..It's obviously around the corner though. I think a pre-Octane 3 launch date would help you all gain some more market share.

Just my 2¢.

With that said, We'll wait until it's ready! Thanks

Is there still any need for beta testers?
I'm interested, in any case :D
