When I try to render smoke one GPU it just gives me an OpenCL error, on the CPU its just fine.

I have a ATI HD 7850 2GB ddr5 OC (gtx970 just fried) and since I installed the graphic card I can't work with smoke.

Can someone tell me if Blender supports smoke rendering with AMD GPU? If so then what is happening to me??

Thank you guys in advance
