Hi!

Would it be possible to port the linalg utils to gpgpu cards like ati radeon or nvidia?

Both types of cards support now some programable interface for general calculations.

Thanks,
Regards,

  • ATLAS currently has no GPU support. We have a couple of students looking at possible ways for ATLAS to support this, but we don't have anything ready to go live at the moment. I'm going to keep this tracker item around as the main "make things work on the GPU" feature request item (I'll be closing other GPU-related requests and pointing them here). I will try to post anything GPU-related that happens here, and users can ask all their GPU-related questions here.

    Users in the past have manually updated ATLAS to call their own GEMM (or CUDA BLAS) by modifying the ATLAS source.

    Cheers,
    Clint
