Using GPU acceleration

I have ImageMagick installed on Ubuntu 18.04 from the official repository. The machine has AMD Radeon Vega 64 with AMDGPU driver installed from the official AMD website.

I wonder if it is possible to use the GPU for hardware acceleration of convert or mogrify commands? Or I have to compile ImageMagick from the source?

You will probably need to rebuild ImageMagick against the OpenCL SDK, as most distros don't ship ImageMagick with OpenCL enabled.
