AMD 5700XT support ( no SPIR support)
« on: July 17, 2019, 05:07:13 PM »
When I run my project, I see this:

AMD Radeon RX 5700 XT (gfx1010): no SPIR support

Will it affect the performance or results of the project?

Hello rexsham,

If you are using latest AMD drivers and latest Metashape version, then you should not experience processing problems.

Check that you see [GPU] related processing lines in the log during GPU-supported operations and no errors.

I am using latest version of both Driver and Metashape.
I still see the same  ( no SPIR support) issue in the log.
The dense cloud generation process can proceed for an hour and it was stuck at around 20% and cannot progress anymore.

Also noticing that Metashape is only reporting 20 compute units when there are 40 on the 5700xt.

Thank you.

The line "no SPIR support" indicates that the driver doesn't support SPIR. It is not an error, just an indication of the fact, since AMD dropped SPIR support at some point.

As for the number of compute units, we are using OpenCL call CL_DEVICE_MAX_COMPUTE_UNITS to get this number. It may be a specific of RDNA architecture that only half of the actual compute units number is returned. However, it shouldn't affect the device performance.
