It appears that BOINC's Wiki for "GPU Computing" [https://boinc.berkeley.edu/wiki/GPU_computing] is locked and doesn't allow edits, so I tried to find an email address to suggest an correction to, but didn't have any luck finding a HelpDesk email address, etc.

Issue: The link for the ATI / AMD's OpenCL products page (i.e. - where it states "...Check ATI's list of OpenCL-enabled products to see which GPUs use OpenCL...") returns a 404 on AMD's site.

Suggestion: I was going to suggest an edit to point that defunct weblink over to https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_AMD_graphics_processing_units

That's not the most current / official, but it's better than the 404 page or even the https://www.amd.com/en/products/specifications/graphics official AMD page which doesn't state any OpenCL compatibility that I can find.

Hoping someone with edit rights might change that to help others that might be doing research on their Graphics Cards and get stumped when the same webpage error befalls them.

Thanks...

Thank you, I have edited the link. A lot of the wiki needs to be checked and rewritten, there's a lot of information out of date.
You can post changes here (but watch out, the forums have a maximum amount of links you can post, 4 I think). I will put them in when I am around (which is almost every day).

Thanks very much!! I believe that'll help folks in the future that try to lookup a card they have.
