I just attached a Windows 7 64-bit machine to Universe, but since I have only an Nvidia card I did not select "Use ATI GPU".
However, the BOINC log upon fetching work states:

Tasks for AMD/ATI GPU are available, but your preferences are set to not accept them

Is this correct? I would get an ATI card if it were so.

They're not ready yet as far as I know, there's been no announcement, and I've not received any tasks for my ATI card, I only get CPU tasks.

Plenty other stuff an ATI card can do while you're waiting. Similar projects like Milkyway, Einstein, SETI.

I had longer break due to some private complications. Week ago I began again works under this GPU app. I am developing yet another tool to help developing of this GPU app. I need better tool that working on higher level to solve some problems in easier way.

Maybe a CUDA version would work.

IWOCL is the most important conference about OpenCl, where developers will see news about this language, meet other devs and hands-on. I wrote to organizeer about Boinc AND Opencl and this is the answer:

Great idea. We have just opened the IWOCL 2018 Call for Papers if you would like to propose something. https://easychair.org/cfp/IWOCL-2018


Why not to partecipate?

Guys, is there currently a way to run GPU tasks on ODROID XU4?

Open CL will be a good start ... lots of systems out there to support

Thanks

Some news from OpenCL's world:
- ROCm is now at 1.7 version (with support to Tensorflow and Caffe).
- SyCL is now at 1.2.1 version, with a lot of new features.
- Codeplay released ComputeCPP 0.5.1 version to write SyCl/OpenCl code with Visual Studio
- KronosGroup released recently the unified and updated specifications of SPIR-V
- CodeXL from AMD is now at 2.5 version
- ARM released OpenCL Compute Library 17.12 version

I am very sorry. I just failed with that big challenge:(.
My skills and efforts were too small for this challenge like the GPU application for this project.
This challenge requires tools which has been not invented yet (some special compiler/converter etc)
and it should developed by team with least few developers.
I don't know, whether I will go back to this project in this year, but chance is small.
I am sorry, I just disappointed Universe@Home community :(.

You have nothing to be sorry. You have tried and this is the important part.
Maybe, in the future, some tools (or the help of volunteers) can help you!

I traded private messages with the Project Admin and he advised that after a year of development and testing they had not been able to get a GPU app to run with the accuracy they need.
