I know we've talked about AMD GPU support a lot and so far it has not worked out well. Maybe their new "HIP" in the Open Compute / Boltzmann / ROCm 1.3 initiative could be worth a new try? Usig it to port CAFFE from CUDA to AMD-something was presumably surprisingly easy and faster than OpenCL out of the box.

Apparently there is another way to compile CUDA codes to OpenCL. I understand the project team is pretty busy keeping up with the current crunching power, though.

With the latest version (1.4) there are a lot of new features, bugfix, documentation, etc
