Does OpenACC support Mac Pro

Dear Sir,
Does OpenACC support Mac pro? Mac Pro has AMD firePro D500. We installed PGI Accelerator OS compiler and run a sample code, tried -ta=radeom, it seemed compiler error. How can I do?

Hi Telsalady,

You can find which Radeon’s we support here: http://www.pgroup.com/resources/accel.htm#targets

As for the D500, if it has then same “Tahiti”, “Caperverde”, or “Spectre” microarchitecture then you should be fine. Though, I can’t find information about which architecture the D500 is. What is the output from the “pgaccelinfo” utility?

Also, what’s the compile error you’re seeing? Note that the flag is “-ta=radeon”, not “radeom”. Also, the default is to target “Tahiti” devices. Please use the appropriate target if different.

I have run Open ACC just fine on a 2013 Mac Pro with Firepro D700 GPUs under Bootcamp and Windows. Question, are the Radeon GPUs now supported under Mac OS? I would much prefer running under Mac OS.

Thanks

Hi Horowitz.charles,

Question, are the Radeon GPUs now supported under Mac OS?

In the original post I missed that this was MAC and focused on the device. The answer to your question is, no, we don’t support Radeon on MacOSX. Apologies for the confusion.
