What GPU driver support is needed?


#1

Hello,



Is it possible to run an OpenCL kernel on a PowerVR Series 6 GPU without an operating system? What about a non-supported RTOS like VxWorks? I realize this isn’t typical or supported but if I could just get a basic outline of what it would take develop/port your own driver for these GPUs I’d much appreciate it. What do you get to start the development/port?



Thanks!

Hello HonDave,



Driver code for PowerVR Series6 is not publicly available.



PowerVR Series6 is licensed directly to chip makers and it is their responsibility to provide drivers for their hardware platform.



Thanks,

Paul
