Hello,

are there any plans of supporting Intel ARC GPUs? Those have pretty much FP64 performance.

Greetings

They in fact DON'T have any native FP64 capability at all. They can only process FP64 in software emulation. So much, much slower than a card with real, physical FP64 capability.
So a poor choice for this project.
