CL bug in cat 13.12 ULPS

I use my Intel IGP as primary display, connected to the monitor.

A Radeon 7950 is used as secondary card to perform OpenCL computations ... but I cannot use the 7950 in OpenCL because it has no attached monitor ...

I tried to disable ULPS, but didn't work.

I **CANNOT** undertand why I need a monitor attached to a GPU to be used with OpenCL. It's a non sense...

I must buy a VGA-dummy which is pretty stupid ... why not to put an option in the Catalyst Control Center to "use this card for physics" as NVIDIA's drivers do?

Hi bubu,

You do not need a monitor to be attached to use the graphics card. Please check the information on this thread for more information: Support for headless GPU operation???
