I wish Apple would push AMD to improve their drivers. The real problem is with the optimizations used by AMD's OpenCL compiler and I've twice submitted the code to AMD and there's never been a response.

But, all is not lost. Sosirus has been helping to improve the performance by adding a sieve and has provided improvements to the Collatz kernel as well and all his work is being done on AMD GPUs. So, with luck, it will also run on OS X. Only time will tell.

Thanks for continuing to try to resolve this issue, Slicker. I would love to upgrade my Mac/AMD boxes beyond 10.8.5 and retain the ability to crunch C@H GPU work units.

hello!

I've found this on the Apple's site!

Perhaps it could help?!?!
