We know there is a LOT of problems to "adapt" cpu app to gpu.
But, for example, they use gpu to "train" AI on Rosetta, so i think it's not impossible to produce gpu app for this project

It's not impossible. After all, it was tried previously, perhaps 9 years ago. The important point is whether it is worthwhile. The previous GPU version ran at roughly the same speed as the CPU version, so that was decided to be not worth continuing.


But, as we said before, some projects run both cpu and gpu apps, so it's not impossible.

PS. I'm much more optimist about cpu optimizations...

For Ralph and Rosetta, CPU optimizations look more worthwhile. For many other BOINC projects, trying GPU versions looks worthwhile.[/quote]

Yeap, a lot of bio/chem project and tools are working on gpu, for example Gromacs

Pytorch 1.8 supports Rocm.
CuPy 9.0 now supports Rocm.

After Nvidia, now also AMD has his "Education and Research" initiative, with Rocm Learning Center.
