That's a strange error code, but anyway I'd expect it to be a 
driver/runtime bug. We see them a lot, from all vendors but nvidia. 
Somehow nvidia manage to end up with very few bugs compared to most 
everyone else including big guys like Intel and AMD.

This shows that *some* formats does work fine, so your OpenCL 
installation isn't totally broken.

That benchmark speed is pretty low though, my laptop GPU does 10510 c/s 
with that format. What if you add --force-scalar to the command line? By 
default, some formats will use 4x vectorizing because your runtime 
claims that's the preferred width of int, but it doesn't always end up 

Anyway I'd start with looking for OpenCL driver/runtimer updates unless 
you already did so.
