GPU Support
« on: June 01, 2018, 09:57:36 am »
I use a graphics library (dll) that supports SSE* and AVX functions to improve performance. However, my compiled WinBatch scripts are not using it. There is a function that checks processor support for 15 different types of SIMD, but all come back as unsupported. Does WinBatch provide GPU support? Do I need to do anything to enable it? Am I out of luck?

Thanks,

Paul Samuelson

If you are referring to WinBatch executables and dlls using these machine instruction internally, you are definitely out of luck.  We keep busy enough supporting all the flavors of Windows.

I don't need WinBatch to do it directly, just allow a dll to do it. I realize that may be the same thing...

If you mean using DllCall to call entry points into a dll that contains the above-mentioned machine instructions then it is the same thing.
