In Topic: OpenCL is very slow comparing to cpu.

01 February 2013 - 08:29 AM

I agree. After i've done this.
clGetDeviceInfo(device[0], CL_DEVICE_MAX_WORK_GROUP_SIZE, sizeof(size_t), &work_group, &ret_work_group);local_ws = work_group;global_ws = var_size / work_group;
then cpu was faster anyway.
But after i've changed function on:
c[iGID] = a[iGID] + sqrt(b[iGID] * b[iGID]);
then gpu was faster in about 3.5 times. So it works. Thanks for your help guys. But i'm wondering about global and local groups. If i have that right the local group is amount of gpu processors which run kernel function simultaneously. And global is count of such passes. Is it right? How should i calculate global group properly?

Turns out that it's impossible to create ref device and after that create a swap chain. Only D3D11CreateDeviceAndSwapChain works properly with ref device. It must be bug of DirectX.

Any ideas? Firstly i invoke D3D11CreateDevice and secondly IDXGIFactory->CreateSwapChain;

My SwapChainDescription is quite simple.

ZeroMemory( &sd, sizeof( sd ) );
sd.BufferCount = 1;
sd.BufferDesc.Width = 640;
sd.BufferDesc.Height = 480;
sd.BufferDesc.Format = DXGI_FORMAT_R8G8B8A8_UNORM;
sd.BufferDesc.RefreshRate.Numerator = 60;
sd.BufferDesc.RefreshRate.Denominator = 1;
sd.OutputWindow = g_hWnd;
sd.SampleDesc.Count = 1;
sd.SampleDesc.Quality = 0;
sd.Windowed = TRUE;

I took it from msdn example.

Thanks. D3D_DRIVER_TYPE_REFERENCE is working now with NULL adapter.

But i can't create swap chain now.
The function CreateSwapChain returns error - 0x887A0001(DXGI_ERROR_INVALID_CALL).

Also i can't run my application with WARP.
D3D11CreateDevice(0, driver, 0, 0, 0, 0, D3D10_SDK_VERSION, &pDevice, NULL, NULL );
I have an error "The parameter is incorrect" again.

Yes. It's not good if it will be nessesary to install DirectX SDK but it's alright.
Ok, here is my code.

D3D11CreateDevice(pAdapter, driver, 0, 0, 0, 0, D3D11_SDK_VERSION, &pDevice, NULL, NULL );

Also i've tried D3D_DRIVER_TYPE_WARP. And i have HRESULT - 0x80070057(The parameter is incorrect. ) all time.
Yes, i have installed latest DirectX Sdk.
