    ATI OpenCL as a Windows service

    bubu

      I'm trying to make a network-distributed app that uses your OpenCL SDK. The question is... can I use OpenCL's calls from a Windows Service without a GUI attached?

       

      thx.

          no. servce don't have acces to GUI only to some virtual GDI. nvidia have special non-graphic driver which expose GPU as computing device and not graphic device.

              And ATI? And... linux?

              We need this for a network farm. The server guys demand to press a button to start the nodes which will fire all the services without having to log in. To make a GUI app is not an option for them.

              I hope almost FirePro could support that as NVIDIA's Tesla does. How can we make a Blue Gene GPGPU farm then?
