    AMD ROCm™ Software - GitHub Home

    Ok, I wonder what's wrong. maybe it's this?

    Nope. Anything about this on the arch wiki? Nope

    This bug report[2] from 2021? Maybe I need to update my groups.

    ROCm OpenOpenCL Runtime

    Its not that they're supporting buggy code, they just downgraded the quality of their implementation significantly. They made the compiler a lot worse when they swapped to rocm is the tracking issue for it filed a year ago, which appears to be wontfix largely because its a lot of work

    OpenCL still unfortunately supports quite a few things that vulkan doesn't, which makes swapping away very difficult for some use cases

    One of your problems might be that gfx1032 is not supported by AMD's ROCm packages, which has a laughably short list of supported hardware:

    The normal workaround is to assign the closest architecture, eg gfx1030, so `HSA_OVERRIDE_GFX_VERSION=10.3.0` might help

    Also, it looks like some of your tested projects are OpenCL? For me, I do something like: `yay -S rocm-hip-sdk rocm-ml-sdk rocm-opencl-sdk` to cover all the bases.

    My recent interest has been LLMs and this is my general step by step for those (llama.cpp, exllama) for those interested:

    I didn't port the docs back in, but also here's a step-by-step w/ my adventures getting TVM/MLC working w/ an APU:

    From my experience, ROCm is improving, but there's a good reason that Nvidia has 90% market share even at big price premiums.

    Ebuilds to install ROCM on Gentoo Linux (by justxi)

    Support for Gentoo existed for a long time in before being merged in the main Portage tree.
