From what i know i need to install a package from the amdgpu-pro drivers but i don’t want to downgrade my drivers.

You just need the runtime to use OpenCL with the non-proprietary driver, see https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/GPGPU#AMD/ATI

I just installed the opencl-amd package from aur and opencl works on applications !!!
Fantastic !

That s cool @xrhstaras . Please mark it as solve as it can help other members in the future

The solution was to Install from Aur the package:
opencl-amd

Also i don’t know but maybe would help that i included
/usr/lib to the ld.so.conf.d file

cd /etc/ld.so.conf.d
sudo nano 00-usrlib.conf

/usr/lib

On ubuntu the only solution was to install the open source part of the amdgpu-pro driver which it gave me an older opensource amdgpu driver/mesa .

Yep , usually on arch linux they have mostly latest apps or such.

its really bleeding edge
